TURIN (Reuters) - AC Milan secured a place in the Champions League next season with a 1-0 victory at Juventus as a goal from Olivier Giroud ensured a top-four finish in Serie A on Sunday.

Fourth-placed Milan on 67 points hold a six-point advantage over fifth-placed Atalanta heading into the final round of matches, while Juventus sit seventh with 59.

Milan took the lead five minutes before the break when Giroud steered home a header inside the box.

As a tired-looking Juventus side failed to find an equaliser the match fizzled out accompanied by boos from the home fans.
