Parma are coming off a 2-2 draw against Frosinone in the league. Alessio Zerbin and Gennaro Tutino's goals canceled each other out, and Parma were put in the driving position in the 52nd-minute thanks to a Dennis Man goal.
However, Gabriel Charpentier's effort late in the second half helped Frosinone salvage a draw.
Meanwhile, Benevento won their last league game 4-3 against Alessandria. Goals from Roberto Insigne, Daam Foulon, Riccardo Improta and an own-goal from Luca Parodi rounded off the scoring.
Simone Corazza's hat-trick for Alessandria went in vain, as Benevento managed to win this thriller by the skin of their teeth.
