Fiorentina beat Atalanta 1-0 in the Italian league on Sunday to stay in the race for a place in European competitions.

Krzysztof Piatek collected a cross from Nico Gonzales to score the winner from close range in the 56th minute. It was the fifth goal for the Poland international forward in his six games for Fiorentina. Piatek joined the Italian club on loan from Hertha Berlin last month.

It was the third victory for Fiorentina over Atalanta in all competitions this season.

Atalanta had an equalizer by Ruslan Malinovskyi disallowed for offside five minutes later after a video review. Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was sent off for dissent following that decision.

His team has been decimated by injuries, with Jeremie Boga the only striker available.

With the victory, Fiorentina climbed to seventh in the table with 42 points, two behind Atalanta in fifth.

Later on Sunday, Inter Milan has the chance to leapfrog AC Milan and go top of the Italian league if it beats midtable Sassuolo at home.

League leader Milan stumbled Saturday with a 2-2 draw at last-place Salernitana, leaving Inter two points behind in second. Inter has played two fewer games than its city rival. In the other Serie A games on Sunday, it’s Venezia vs. Genoa and Udinese vs. Lazio.
