9: Gerson goes on a probing run before drilling in a powerful angled shot from the edge of the box. Lobont parries and collects.
10: Roma take the lead! Pjanic latches onto a mistake by Rapid's defence and slots the ball inside the far post with a tidy finish.
22: Osvaldo's flying header is kept out at point-blank range by the Vienna keeper.
24: A stunning equaliser for Vienna! US striker Terence Boyd first shakes the bar with an overhead kick, then after Lobont saves another effort Boyd gets up to perform a majestic bicycle kick from the centre of the box!
38: Totti floats a cross into the box and Romagnoli gets up to connect but can only direct his effort wide. A good chance goes begging.
40: Drazan skips away down the left and centres for Trimmel, who hits the post with half the goal at his mercy
49: Boyd dangerous again as he carries the ball forward and lets fly from range, Lobont pushing round the post.
53: Simplicio traps the ball and instantly threads a pass into the box for Pizarro to run onto and knock past the Austrian keeper at full stretch. 2-1 to Roma!
64: Pizarro's corner is half-cleared by the defence and drops to Bojan, who releases a powerful snapshop from outside the box. Konigshofer palms it away.
84: Schimpelsberger tries to carve out a route to goal as he cuts inside from the right and gets his shot away: no trouble for substitute goalkeeper Svedkauskus.
