Juventus 3-1 Fulham
UEFA Europa League
11 March 2010
Juventus would get a 3-1 win at home with the second leg heading back to London and Craven Cottage.
It was a great first half for Juventus who would score three first half goals. The first came from Legrottaglie in the 9th minute, the second from Zebina in the 25th minute, and the third from Trezeguet in the 45th minute.
As Juventus led 2-0 after Zebina’s goal, Fulham would cut the lead in half and appeared to be grabbing the momentum. A goal in the 36th minute from Etuhu made it 2-1. Unfortunately for Fulham they couldn’t keep that momentum alive and Juventus scored again in 1st half stoppage time to make it 3-1.
Neither team would score in the second half but both had some chances. American Clint Dempsey came in as a substitute to play his first minutes since a knee injury but looked a bit rusty. Overall, Juventus were the better side and are in good position to advance but Fulham are not out of it yet.
