Fulham endured a frustrating evening in Croatia as RNK Split eked out a goalless draw in the Europa League third qualifying round.

The Cottagers failed to impress at Dugopolje's Stadion Hrvatski Vitezovi and struggled to unleash a menacing attack at any stage of the first leg.

Split proved the more dangerous force and had two gilt-edged chances to score, with Ante Erceg fluffing a one-on-one opportunity in the sixth minute before substitute Duje Cop missed an equally inviting chance in the dying minutes of the game.
