EUROPA LEAGUE: Dembele sees red as Fulham gives Wisla first points
Fulham were tonight beaten 1-0 by Polish club Wisla Krakow in their third group stage match of the Europa League.
The red card to the Belgian attacker made life very difficult for Martin Jol's men who conceded in the 60th minute when Dudu Biton gave Mark Schwarzer no chance with his 22-yard effort after picking up the ball in midfield.
The Cottagers were already without the rested Bobby Zamora and Clint Dempsey and it only got worse when replacement forward Orlando Sa had to come off early in the second half with a hamstring problem.
Wisla had a man of their own sent off in the 87th minute when Osman Chavez received a second booking, however, the Poles were the team who had the score on the board and managed to secure their first win in four attempts against English clubs, allowing them to join Odense on three points as Dutch club FC Twente went to the top of Group K with a 4-1 win in Denmark.
