FULHAM FAIRY TALE RUN CONTINUES

Fulham advanced to the quarter-finals of the Europa League after beating Juventus in one of the greatest nights in the club’s history.

GERA AND ETUHU

David Trezeguet fired the away side in front after just two minutes. But Fulham equalised when  Bobby Zamora chested a cross down and fired past Juve’s third-choice goalkeeper Antonio Chimenti on nine minutes.

The game changed soon later when Fabio Cannavaro was sent off for a tug on Zoltan Gera, and the Hungarian put Fulham in front on 39 minutes – firing into the net from close range.

DEMPSEY CELEBRATES GOAL

Gera scored from the penalty spot four minutes after the break and Clint Dempsey sealed the win with a sublime chip with just eight minutes of normal time remaining – the Italians ended with no dignity and finished the game with nine men as Jonathan Zebina saw red late on.
