The host came into this one on the back of two consecutive 1-0 victories as for Brescia they had recorded a win and a draw.
Brescia immediately started the brighter putting Roberto D’Aversa’s men on the back foot early as both Federico Furlan and Tommaso Cancellotti came close to putting the visitors in front.
Parma calmed the early storm and began to control the game, a fluffed shot by Luigi Scaglia almost found Jacopo Dezi, sliding in on the soaked Tardini turf, the on loan Napoli man could only steer his lunging effort wide.
Brescia responded well to Parma’s pressure and Biagio Meccariello got the best out of Pierluigi Frattali as the Parma number one kept out his powerful effort with a smart stop to his left, much to the disappointment to the travelling fans behind his goal.
Roberto Insigne thought he had opened his account for the season as a lovely low cross from Emanuele Calaio found Insigne with the goal at his mercy, Stefano Minelli somehow managed to keep the scores level with an incredible point blank save.
As the half drew to a close Parma did have the ball in the net, Calaio rounded Minelli to slot home only for it to be chalked off for offside.
As the team were having a well-deserved break, the conditions in Parma worsened, as the rain lashed down with parts of the Tardini pitch now just large puddles. Any other day, any other referee the second half would not have stood a chance of starting.
The game did get underway again in the farcical conditions with Parma starting the brighter, doing their best to avoid the puddles, Simone Iacoponi had an effort deflected off Michele Somma and safely stopped by Minelli.
Brescia looked to break on a dangerous counter attack but were stopped in their tracks by the appalling state of the turf, with the ball being held up by the puddles covering the pitch. With zero football able to be played as players began flicking the ball up first just to pass it, it was difficult to see where a goal would come from.
The visitors did find a way through though, A needless, ridiculous tackle from Valerio Di Cesare awarded Brescia a freekick out wide, Federico Furlan found the head of Alexis Ferrante who gave Brescia the lead.
As D’Aversa rang the changes Parma began to pour forward again the condition however were making it impossible to create anything, with the best chance falling to Di Cesare at the back post but he fluffed his lines as his pathetic attempt at a diving header failed to even hit the target from close range.
Brescia held on to win a game that really should never have been allowed to continue.
