The Ospreys ensured there were no slip-ups on their trip to Parma on Friday night as they eased to a 34-16 win over Zebre in their RaboDirect PRO12 league encounter.
Steve Tandy's side ran in three tries at the Stadio XXV Aprile, with fly-half Dan Biggar contributing a total of 24 points.
He got the scoreboard moving with a sixth-minute penalty and, after Gonzalo Garcia had levelled, pushed his side out into a 9-3 lead with two more three-pointers.
Zebre's Alberto Chillon was then sent to the sin-bin and Richard Fussell made the most of his the visitors' numerical advantage by grabbing his side's first try.
Biggar converted and, when Jonathan Thomas crossed as well, the Ospreys led 21-6 at the break, with Daniel Halangahu scoring a penalty on the whistle.
Luca Redolfini then touched down (43) and when Halangahu converted there were only eight points in at 21-13, before he and Biggar traded penalties.
Ospreys' Wales international No.10 had the last word, though, scoring a fifth penalty before converting his own try inside the last quarter.
