A first-half goal from Mati Fernandez was enough for Milan to see off Genoa at San Siro after an encouraging performance.
"I am convinced that we can still reach Europe if we keep performing like this," Montella told Mediaset.
"We put in a good performance. There was not a lot of space and we had to be patient. We got at least three or four great chances to score in the first half. It was a bit more complicated after the break, but that is normal.
"These are three very important points.
"There are no easy games, we only have to focus on our own path. We are already thinking about the next game."
