MILAN (AP) -- Fiorentina fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat at Cagliari as it lost ground in the race for a Champions League place, while Udinese beat Bologna 2-0 in a Serie A relegation fight on Saturday.

Cagliari scored the only goal six minutes from halftime when Mauricio Pinilla blasted home from the penalty spot after Facundo Roncaglia tripped Marco Sau.

Fiorentina new signing Anderson made his first start following a loan move from Manchester United but proved ineffective. The Tuscan team was missing leading strikers Mario Gomez and Giuseppe Rossi, who are both out with long-term injuries.

Fiorentina remained three points behind third-placed Napoli, which visits Atalanta on Sunday.

Antonio Di Natale scored a first-half penalty for Udinese before Nico Lopez sealed the result.

AC Milan hosts Torino later.
