Milan beats Torino 1-0 to move into third place in Serie A

AC Milan warmed up for the second leg of the Champions League semifinals with a 1-0 win at Torino in Serie A on Saturday.
Also, Fiorentina beat Chievo Verona 1-0 on a 64th-minute goal by Reginaldo.
Clarence Seedorf scored with a long, rising shot in the 26th to move Milan ahead of Lazio into third place.
Torino was reduced to 10 men in the 73rd when defender Oscar Brevi was shown his second yellow card for a foul on Ronaldo.
On Wednesday, Milan hosts Manchester United in the Champions League. United won the opening leg 3-2 on Tuesday.
"Now we're confident for Wednesday's game," midfielder Andrea Pirlo said. "We've got the right condition in the right moment. Tomorrow, we'll start thinking about Manchester."
Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti rested Kaka and Filippo Inzaghi, who are expected to lead the Rossoneri attack against Manchester.
Milan, which began the season with an eight-point penalty from the Italian match-fixing scandal, has 59 points. Lazio, which meets AS Roma in the Roman derby Sunday, has 57 points.
With 33 points, Torino is only two points clear of the relegation zone.
Reginaldo scored for Fiorentina with a difficult, angled volley off a pass from Fabio Liverani.
In the 76th, Reginaldo had a goal disallowed for offside.
Fiorentina was without suspended striker Luca Toni.
With 50 points, Fiorentina moved into a tie for fifth place with Empoli. Chievo is only one point clear of the relegation zone.
On Sunday, Empoli plays Inter Milan, which clinched the Serie A title last weekend.
