    • 59' Safari has to come to his keeper's rescue after a backpass goes astray. Johnson was in close attention all the time for any scraps.
    • 57' GOAL!! And it's Murphy who breaks the deadlock! Johnson pulls the ball back to him and from the edge of the area Murphy makes no mistake!

    • 31' Good move from Fulham ends with a Zamora shot that doesn't have enough power behind it.

    • 26' Good period of play for Basel here and they really should be one nil up here.
    • 23' CHANCE!! WHAT A MISS! Huggel is all on his own about eight yards out with the goal gaping and he puts it well over!

    • 15' Greening clashes with Gelabert and the latter goes to ground. Just a free kick to Basel.

    • 9' Konchesky incredulous to concede a corner that he thinks is a goal kick, but Frei's kick is easily dealt with.
