Roma v Parma abandoned with eight minutes played

AS Roma forward Francesco Totti falls on the slippery field

Roma's Serie A match at home to Parma was abandoned with only eight minutes played because of a waterlogged pitch.

Torrential rain had made the surface at the Stadio Olimpico unplayable in certain parts.

Referee Andrea De Marco called a halt to the action before demonstrating to the players that the ball was barely bouncing on the rain-sodden pitch.

Roma started the game six points adrift of leaders and champions Juventus, who host Inter Milan in Sunday's late game.
