Yann Karamoh’s rocket and a cheeky Hernani finish on the free kick gave Parma the lead, but Emmanuel Gyasi’s brace clawed back a point for Spezia.
The Ducali had for the second week running rushed into a 2-0 lead in a relegation dogfight, as Karamoh sprinted forward, cut inside Simone Bastoni and rifled in a scorcher from a tight angle.
Juan Brunetta’s free kick then found Hernani for a strange full stretch flick off his heel.
However, once again Parma threw it away, as Spezia twice got Gyasi into a position where he just needed to bundle over the line from a couple of yards.
It was open until the end, including Ivan Provedel’s save on a Juraj Kucka free kick.
