FULL-TIME

St Etienne 0-1 PSG

Ibrahimovic's nasty final act is also the last action of the game. The Swede's goal from the penalty spot has given PSG the win and taken them level on points with second-placed Monaco in Ligue 1. They are also now four points above St Etienne in fourth.

YELLOW CARD

St Etienne 0-1 PSG

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a lucky boy. He gets a yellow card for a very high boot that leaves a St Etienne player rolling around on the touchline holding his knee. No wonder he is holding as replays show that the PSG striker's kick was high, nowhere hear the ball and no doubt very painful. He could easily have seen red for that, but gets away with a yellow.

FULL-TIME

Valencia 3-1 Sevilla

A Dani Parejo double and Javi Fuego's second-half goal (along with Diego Alves' penalty save to deny Carlos Bacca a second goal) gives Valencia a win they thoroughly deserve. They move above tonight's opponents into fourth in the table, three points behind third-placed Atletico Madrid.

St Etienne 0-1 PSG

Meanwhile, in France, PSG are five minutes from recording a win that will take them level on points with second-placed Monaco in Ligue 1.

Valencia 3-1 Sevilla

We are into the final minute of the Mestalla. Valencia are cruising towards three points against Sevilla.

FULL-TIME

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

It is indeed the final chance of the game. Frustration for Roma, who are held to another draw, which leaves them seven points behind leaders Juventus. It could have been worse for Rudi Garcia's team, though. They were distinctly second best in the first half and could have been more than 1-0 down. The point is reward for a much-improved second 45 minutes.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

Alessandro Florenzi swings over the free-kick but it is met well by a home head, which takes the ball clear of danger. The home side are then able to rally and ensure Roma cannot come again. That could well be that...

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

Here we go. Added time and Roma have a free-kick deep in Fiorentina territory on the left...

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

The final minute in Florence and Alessandro Florenzi has a half-chance to snatch a winner when he brings down a long ball forward on the edge of the box. The angle is tight, though, and he fires his effort well over the bar.

St Etienne 0-1 PSG

PSG are inches from sealing a win at St Etienne as Edinson Cavani breaks away, but with just the keeper to beat his lob from the edge of the box comes back off the bar.

Valencia 3-1 Sevilla

No sign of a Sevilla comeback at the Mestalla. After reasserting their two-goal dominance on the game, Valencia have managed the game well. With just under 10 minutes to go they look to be on their way to a win.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

Of course, Roma will also not want to lose this by throwing men forward and getting hit on the break. They almost suffer such a fate as Juan Cuadrado charges forward and the ball is eventually given to Khouma Babacar but the substitutes shot from an angle goes harmlessly out of play from a goal-kick.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

The pressure is all on Roma to get a result in Florence. If things stay as they are they will be seven points behind league-leaders Juventus. Fiorentina are comfortable in sixth and will be a lot happier with a single point from the game.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

It remains delicately balanced in Florence. Fiorentina have withdrawn goalscorer Mario Gomez and sent on Senegalese striker Khouma Babacar. Roma respond by taking off the ineffectual Francesco Totti and replacing him with Mattia Destro.

St Etienne 0-1 PSG

Zlatan may have just scored to give PSG the lead but he isn't happy. He appears to be claiming that a laser was being shone in his eyes as he stepped up to take the penalty. Not that it prevented him scoring, the big ponytailed pro that he is.

GOAL

St Etienne 0-1 PSG - Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan makes no mistake from the spot. The keeper goes the right way (to his left) but is unable to prevent the ball finding the net.

PENALTY

St Etienne 0-0 PSG

The deadlock could finally be broken as PSG are given a penalty when Jeremy Clement leans into the ball and handles in the box. It is a gift for the away side.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

We are midway through the second half in Florence and the home side have edged their way back into the match after Roma's equaliser just after the break. Borja Valero unleashes a powerful shot from distance but it is blocked before it can cause Morgan De Sanctis any hassle in the Roma net.

St Etienne 0-0 PSG

We've had a shot on target in France. Yes, a shot on target. It is not a very good one, though, as Edinson Cavani's effort from the edge of the box is easily saved by Stephane Ruffier.

GOAL

Valencia 3-1 Sevilla - Javi Fuego

Valencia are back in control at the Mestalla. Away keeper Beto's poor clearance gives possession back to the home side who spread the ball wide to Rodrigo and, after some fancy footwork, his square ball is side-footed home by Javi Fuego.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

Fiorentina try to reassert themselves on the game but Juan Cuadrado's shot from range is blocked by the body of a Roma defender. It wasn't a test for the away keeper but it the most positive thing the home side have done this half.

St Etienne 0-0 PSG

Frustrated PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic let loose on the referee after being pulled back for a debatable foul on Kevin Theophile-Catherine when he appeared to have a clear run on goal during the first half against St Etienne.

KICK-OFF

St Etienne 0-0 PSG

We are also back under way in France. Hopefully a better second half awaits.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

Roma are also in again as Francesco Totti plays a neat pass into the feet of Juan Iturbe, who has just the home keeper to beat but fails as Tatarusanu dives at his feet to block. The flow of this game has completely reversed from the Fiorentina-dominated first 45 minutes. Roma are on top now.

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma

Suddenly, Roma look full of confidence. Francesco Totti has an effort from 25 yards but it is straight at Tatarusanu, who saves.

KICK-OFF

Valencia 2-1 Sevilla

The second half gets under way at the Mestalla.

GOAL

Fiorentina 1-1 Roma - Adem Ljajic

The perfect start to the second half for Roma as a chipped ball forward is met by Juan Iturbe, who muscles past his marker and pulls the ball back for Adem Ljajic to stroke into the net from inside the box. Game on.

Fiorentina 1-0 Roma

Roma have an early chance to level this game up from a free-kick but Adem Ljajic's chip into the box beats everyone and bounces out for a goal-kick.

KICK-OFF

Fiorentina 1-0 Roma

We are back under way at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

HALF-TIME

St Etienne 0-0 PSG

Little to say about that half. PSG won the reverse fixture of this 5-0 earlier in the season. This has been nothing like that. Sadly.

HALF-TIME

Valencia 2-1 Sevilla

Half-time at the Mestalla where a proper game of football is taking place. Valencia looked to be in complete control thanks to two goals from Dani Parejo but Carlos Bacca has given Sevilla a life-line and could have given them parity from the spot but for the boot of home keeper Diego Alves.

St Etienne 0-0 PSG

It remains 0-0 at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard between St Etienne and a very frustrated Paris St Germain. There has yet to be a shot on goal.

MISSED PENALTY

Valencia 2-1 Sevilla

Would you believe it! Bacca steps up and strokes his penalty to Diego Alves' left but the keeper guesses right and is able to knock the ball away from goal with his boot. It is all going off at the Mestalla.

PENALTY

Valencia 2-1 Sevilla

And now Sevilla have another penalty! Ever Banega is felled in the box by a sliding tackle and the referee has no hesitation. Carlos Bacca is going to take it to potentially drag his side level...

GOAL

Valencia 2-1 Sevilla - Carlos Bacca

Valencia looked to be in cruise control, but they will have to revise matters now as Carlos Bacca gets a goal back for Sevilla from the penalty spot, just four minutes after Parejo's second for the home side. We have a game on our hands again.

HALF-TIME

Fiorentina 1-0 Roma

And that is the break. Roma have a lot of work to do. They have not been in this game at all really. And they are fortunate not to be trailing by more than Mario Gomez's solitary goal.

Fiorentina 1-0 Roma

Meanwhile, back in Florence, there are going to be two minutes of injury time. Fiorentina almost use the added time to maximum effect when Mario Gomez is allowed to hold the ball up in the box and tee up Matias Fernandez for a shot which is destined for the goal until a Roma body dives in to block.

GOAL

Valencia 2-0 Sevilla - Dani Parejo

It is looking very good for Valencia, who double their lead against Sevilla. It is Dani Pareja again, finding space in the box with a late run to gather Javi Fuego's pass and slot the ball into the corner of the net.
