Parma bounce straight back into Serie A

MILAN - Parma were promoted back to Serie A at the first attempt when they drew 2-2 at Cittadella on Saturday. The 1995 and 1999 UEFA Cup winners will join Serie B leaders Bari in the top flight next season after Antonio Conte's side secured promotion last week. Second-placed Parma, coached by former Palermo boss Francesco Guidolin, went seven points above Livorno in third with two games to play. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth teams will play off at the end of the season to decide the third promotion spot.
