Soccer-Giampaolo off the mark as Milan edge to narrow win over Brescia

Aug 31 (Reuters) - AC Milan coach Marco Giampaolo earned his first win at the club as Hakan Calhanoglu struck early to clinch a 1-0 home victory over Brescia in Serie A on Saturday.

The 18-times Italian champions failed to muster a single shot on target when they fell to a shock 1-0 defeat away to Udinese on the opening weekend.

Yet Calhanoglu’s headed goal after 12 minutes settled the nerves of the San Siro crowd and proved to be decisive in a cagey encounter.

Milan take on another newly-promoted side when they travel to Hellas Verona after the international break.

Brescia, who also have three points thanks to their opening day victory against Cagliari, host Bologna in their next league fixture. (Reporting by Alasdair Mackenzie Editing by Toby Davis)
