ROME (AP) - Roma rallied to beat Parma 3-1 on Monday night to maintain its unbeaten start to the Serie A season.
Parma took a surprise lead six minutes from halftime when Jonathan Biabiany headed Mattia Cassani's deep cross into the bottom right corner.
After conceding its first goal this season, Roma leveled through Alessandro Florenzi in the second minute after halftime.
Captain Francesco Totti gave Roma the lead in the 70th minute when he controlled Kevin Strootman's ball over the defense and fired into the bottom left corner for his first goal of the season.
Roma sealed the win six minutes from time when Strootman got his first goal for the club with an unstoppable penalty after Gervinho had been tripped by Cassani.
