MILAN (Reuters) – A rare Hakan Calhanoglu goal gave AC Milan a 1-0 win at mid-table Fiorentina in Serie A on Saturday to keep them in the hunt for a Champions League place.

The Turkish midfielder met Suso’s cross with a glancing header to break the deadlock in the 36th minute and leave Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella waiting for his first win since taking charge one month ago.

Milan, needing a top-four finish to qualify for the Champions League, are fifth with 62 points, one behind Inter Milan who do not play until Monday when they host relegated Chievo.

Third-placed Atalanta have 65 points after beating Genoa 2-1 earlier on Saturday.
