Take a look back at the Fulham vs Juventus result and the Fulham vs Juventus highlights of the Europa League second leg amid the coronavirus outbreak which has put most of the countries in the world on lockdown.
The first leg of the Europa League last-16 clash between Juventus and Fulham ended 3-1 in favour of the home side at the Stadio Olimpico di Turin. However, there was still hope for the Cottagers to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League as Dickson Etuhu scored the solitary away goal for the visitors in Turin.

Not many fans expected the Fulham vs Juventus result as it was when David Trezeguet opened the scoring early for Juventus virtually putting the game beyond the reach of the English outfit, but Bobby Zamora soon fired Fulham level on the night. Fabio Cannavaro's sending off proved to be a decisive moment in the game and Zoltan Gera added a second just before half time setting up a mouth-watering last 45 minute period.
The Hungarian, Gera, then tucked away a neat penalty to get Fulham level in the tie. Substitute Clint Dempsey then sent the home fans into delirium with a chipped finish over Antonio Chimentiwon before Jonathan Zebina was sent off as Juventus ended the game with nine players.
