Fulham FC will look to maintain their unbeaten record at Craven Cottage on UEFA Europa League matchday four, and avenge a 1-0 Group K loss at Wisła Kraków last time out.
The sides met for the first time in UEFA competition last time out in what was Fulham’s first tie against a Polish club. The visitors’ Moussa Dembélé was dismissed on 29 minutes, with David Biton’s goal (60) giving Wisła their first Group K points, though they had Osman Chávez sent off late on.
Wisła’s four games against English sides have ended W1 D1 L2 (W0 D0 L1 in England).
Fulham have already played 11 European games this season, since entering the first qualifying round through the UEFA Respect Fair Play system. They have won six of those, drawing three and losing two.
The Cottagers are the only side to have made it all the way from the first qualifying round to the group stage this season.
Fulham remain unbeaten in 21 European home games (16 wins and five draws) stretching back to their European debut, a 0-0 UEFA Intertoto Cup draw against FC Haka on 6 July 2002. A 1-1 draw with FC Twente on matchday one ended a run of nine continental wins at Craven Cottage. It was also the first time they have conceded at home in UEFA matches this season.
Wisła have won two of their four UEFA away games this season – both victories coming in the qualifying rounds – but have lost all three of their UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League group stage fixtures on the road, having made their debut in the 2006/07 competition.
