INTERNATIONAL NEWS - Antonio Di Natale scored twice as Udinese beat Parma 4-2 to move third in the Serie A standings on Monday.
Parma took the lead in the 22nd minute when Antonio Cassano threaded the ball through for 18-year-old Jose Mauri to slot into the bottom left corner.
Di Natale restored parity minutes later and fired Udinese in front on the stroke of halftime following a swift counter attack.
However, there was still time before the break for Cassano to equalize with a cheeky chipped penalty after Silvan Widmer brought down Mauri.
Udinese defender Thomas Heurtaux scored shortly before the hour mark with an acrobatic overhead kick, and Cyril Thereau sealed the result six minutes from time, shortly after Parma midfielder Afriyie Acquah had been sent off for a second booking.
"Credit to Parma, they put us in difficulty in the first half, especially on the left wing," Udinese coach Andrea Stramaccioni said. "Heurtaux scored a great goal, he is in great form.
"We weren't at 100 percent, there is still a lot to work on and we are here for that. We have to get 40 points (for safety) and this start is useful for our mentality. We have to keep our feet on the ground."
Parma remained in the bottom three after just one win in its opening five matches.
Palermo and Lazio also had just three points and they were playing each other later in Sicily.
