Highlights: Roma 2-1 Parma

Roma fought back from an early penalty with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jordan Veretout power, but should Parma have had another spot-kick?

The situation was tense at the Stadio Olimpico, as both teams were coming off three consecutive defeats.

It was a rough start for makeshift defender Bryan Cristante, clipping the heels of Andreas Cornelius to give away an early penalty, converted by Juraj Kucka.

After Lorenzo Pellegrini hit the post, Mkhitaryan and Veretout powered their way back into the game.

However, there was controversy when Parma felt they deserved another penalty for Gianluca Mancini’s handball, but the referee opted against it even after the on-field review.
