Indeed, Parma were ready to put pressure on their relegation rivals in Serie A, seemingly on their way to another three points.
But, Genoa ultimately defeated Parma 2-1, thanks to a brace from Gianluca Scamacca.
Scamacca came off the bench at half-time for Eldor Shomurodov.
And he turned the game around with a brace, securing three points for Ballardini.
Parma’s winless streak finally ended against Roma last time out. Meanwhile, Genoa, who started well under Davide Ballardini, have sunk in recent weeks.
