Juve show class to beat Cottagers

Published Add your comment

Fulham's hopes of a fairytale place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League were left hanging by a thread as European heavyweights Juventus outclassed Roy Hodgson's side 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico di Turin.

The Cottagers struggled for possession in the first half and went 2-0 down thanks to goals from Nicola Legrottaglie and Jonathan Zebina.

Dickson Etuhu pulled one back but Hodgson's men always looked second best and David Trezeguet's sharp third goal emphasised the gulf in class between the two sides.
