The Gialloblu's 2-1 win over Genoa on Monday lifted them three points clear of the bottom three and just one point and one place behind Sunday's opponents.
The three points earned at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, courtesy of a brace from Gervinho, was only Parma's second league victory of the season and came at a vital time against their fellow strugglers.
After an 11th-placed finish in 2019-20, they have found life tough this season after appointing Fabio Liverani as manager in the summer.
The team have struggled for goals, with last season's top scorer Andreas Cornelius yet to get off the mark in the new campaign.
Parma average the lowest amount of shots per game in the division and only Genoa and Crotone have netted on fewer occasions.
However the Gialloblu have suffered defeat in just one of their four home games this season, and that came on the opening day against Napoli.
Yet Benevento will travel to Il Tardini with confidence after taking a point off reigning champions Juventus in a 1-1 draw last Saturday.
After finishing rock bottom of Serie A and 17 points adrift of safety in their only other top-flight campaign in 2017-18, Benevento are making a much better fist of survival this time around under Pippo Inzaghi.
Only Torino have conceded more goals than the Campania-based side, but they have ground out victories against Sampdoria, Bologna and Fiorentina and are nearly halfway to their points total from two years ago already.

Fabio Liverani may be hesitant to make too many other changes as he attempts to build momentum following their win at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
For Benevento, Pasquale Schiattarella is suspended after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season against Juventus.
However in better news, left-back Daam Foulon is contention to return after missing the last two games with a shoulder problem.
Parma possible starting lineup:
Sepe; Busi, Osorio, Alves, Ricci; Kucka, Scozzarella, Kurtic; Karamoh, Gervinho; Cornelius
Benevento possible starting lineup:
Montipo; Letizia, Glik, Tuia, Foulon; Hetemaj, Tello, Improta; Insigne, Caprari; Lapadula
We say: Parma 2-2 Benevento
Both teams will have taken confidence from their results last weekend and will see this match as an opportunity to push further up the table. Parma have better quality in their side on paper, but Benevento have proven that they can grind out results and could take a point from their trip to Il Tardini.
