This time, Zebre attacked from the off, scoring two first-half tries courtesy of Jamie Elliott and Charlie Walker, both converted by Michelangelo Biondelli – who then added a 21st-minute penalty to send his side to a 17-0 lead.

Segonds got a penalty for the hosts just one minute later to get them on the scoreboard before half-time.

But Zebre were not to be denied, and added two more tries of their own from Pierre Bruno and George Biagi.

Thierry Feuteu grabbed a late try for Stade – but Guglielmo Palazzani finished the match in style for the visitors by kicking a last-minute penalty.

Stade Francais had won all 19 of their previous European games against Italian opposition.
