Substitute Gianluca Scamacca scored twice to help Genoa come from behind and beat fellow strugglers Parma 2-1 in Serie A.
Graziano Pelle scored a spectacular opener but Scamacca was brought on at half-time and turned Friday’s match around.
Genoa moved nine points above the drop zone while Parma remained four points from safety.
Parma ended a 17-match winless run last weekend by surprising Roma 2-0.
The hosts took the lead against Genoa in the 16th minute when a long ball over the top was headed down to Pelle, who controlled it on his chest before firing it in with an overhead kick.
Scamacca replaced Eldor Shomurodov at half-time and levelled four minutes later when Davide Zappacosta’s cross-shot hit him and he turned it into the back of the net.
Scamacca’s first was somewhat fortuitous but his second was impressive as he fired a long-range effort into the bottom right corner in the 69th minute.
