Roma's Serie A meeting with Parma was abandoned after only eight minutes of rain-affected play and will be rescheduled.

Roma's game at home to Parma had to be abadoned due to adverse weather conditions.
Roma's game at home to Parma had to be abadoned due to adverse weather conditions.

There was doubt the league game at Rome's Stadio Olimpico would go ahead at all on Sunday due to incessant heavy rain affecting the Italian capital and kick-off was delayed for several minutes.

Only eight minutes of play took place before referee Andrea De Marco decided to suspend the game for 30 minutes, pending a pitch inspection, but the match was soon officially abandoned following the interruption.

A tweet issued through Roma's official Twitter account read: "#RomaParma: game rescheduled to date to be decided."

No new date has been set for the encounter and it is unlikely to take place on Monday given Roma must host Napoli in the Coppa Italia semi-finals on Wednesday evening.

Rudi Garcia's Roma were hoping to narrow a six-point gap on leaders Juventus with victory while seventh-placed Parma were pursuing a fifth-consecutive league win.
