Fulham boss Roy Hodgson struggles to see any defensive weaknesses at Juventus, despite their injury crisis.

The Cottagers need to overturn a 3-1 deficit in tonight's Europa League second-leg clash.

Juventus squandered a three-goal lead against Serie A’s bottom club, Siena, on Sunday and are without first and second choice goalkeepers Gianluigi Buffon and Alex Manninger, but Hodgson can see no defensive weakness.

He said: "I look at their back four and you’ve got two World Cup winners in there (Cannavaro and Grosso) and an experienced goalkeeper (39-year-old Antonio Chimenti)."
