And Parma midfielder Brugman's strike fired his side into a shock lead at the Allianz Stadium after Ronaldo cowered in the wall.
Ronaldo avoided further embarrassment as Juventus mounted a successful comeback thanks to a brace from Alex Sandro and Matthijs de Ligt's thumping header.

Sergio Oliveira's low free-kick went through Ronaldo's legs in the second-leg round-of-16 clash at the Allianz Stadium.
Speaking after the 3-1 win over Parma, Pirlo revealed that the former Real Madrid star's presence in the wall would be 'evaluated' ahead of Juventus' upcoming matches.
The 41-year-old Italian told Sky Sport Italia: "Unfortunately these things happen, we will evaluate what to do in the next matches and whether to put him in the wall."
Juventus' victory keeps them in contention for a top-four place as their Serie A title defence continues to fade.
The defending Italian champions are 11 points adrift from league leaders Inter Milan.
Juventus were one of the 12 founding members of the controversial European Super League, which was heavily supported by club chairman Andrea Agnelli.
When he was asked about his thoughts on the European Super League, Pirlo said: "Agnelli explained what was happening, but that the most important thing was to secure a place in the top four to qualify for the Champions League."
The Juve head coach added: "I already spoke about it, so did the president and the director.
"We all know the same things. Something has to be changed on the European level, because the ideas that were proposed were good ones, but we are also open to other suggestions and will respect the rules."
