Roma ended Parma’s five-game unbeaten run this afternoon to climb to fifth in the Serie A table.
Fabio Borini’s 26th minute goal handed the Eternal City giants all three points at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma could have won by a greater margin but Antonio Mirante put in a solid performance in goal to keep the visitors in the game.
The hosts held on without any major scares to record their 11th win of the campaign.
The result has allowed Roma to leapfrog Inter Milan into fifth place after the Nerazzurri lost 3-0 to Bologna yesterday.
Parma have dropped to 14th but have two games in hand.
