Unbeaten in Serie A for six games, Roma lost on Sunday Parma (0-2), on the 12th day.

Dirty week for AS Roma. Three days after his defeat in the Europa League on the field of Borussia MOnchengladbach (1-2), the Roman formation suffered a second defeat in a row. French midfielder Jordan Veretout and his teammates lost (0-2) to Parma.

The Romans, who had not lost in Serie A since the fifth day, conceded a first goal in the 68th minute. Mattia Sprocati, who had replaced Gervinho, injured in the first half, deceived Pau Lopez, the goalkeeper of Roma, scoring his first goal of the season. Then the former striker of Bordeaux, the Danish Andreas Cornelius, who definitely made the break in overtime (90 + 3).

The Romans, who touched the cross in the 55th minute on a free kick from Kolarov, may have some regrets because they have not been able to be effective. This second defeat of the season puts them in sixth place at two points from the third place occupied by rival Lazio. Parma, for its part, is recovering after three matches without winning (two draws, one loss) and goes from tenth to eighth place in the standings.
