Parma snatch 1-1 draw against Fiorentina

  •  

MILAN (AP) -Jaime Valdes atoned for his earlier penalty miss with a stoppage-time spot kick to rescue a 1-1 draw for 10-man Parma at home to Fiorentina in Serie A on Saturday.

Valdes saw his first-half penalty saved by Fiorentina goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano but made no mistake with his second.

Minutes earlier, Serie A top goal-scorer Stevan Jovetic, who had four goals in the previous three games, missed the chance to seal the win for Fiorentina when his penalty was saved by Parma goalkeeper Antonio Mirante.

Aleandro Rosi was sent off in that incident.

Argentine defender Facundo Roncaglia scored a stunning first goal in Italy to give Fiorentina the lead.

Roncaglia hit the post in the first half, as did Parma defender Alessandro Lucarelli in a thrilling match at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
