Fenerbahce knock Lazio out

11 April 2013 10:47

Fenerbahce held off a determined Lazio to progress to the semi-finals of the Europa League by drawing 1-1 in the eerie surrounds of a virtually empty Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio, serving the second of a two-game stadium ban, may not have had their fans to cheer them on but for 70 minutes they put up a determined fight to overcome a 2-0 first-leg deficit, and Senad Lulic's goal just after the hour mark gave them hope.

But as they piled forward in search of a second, Caner Erkin's powerful equaliser - their first shot on target - ended Italian hopes and put Fener into the final four of a European competition for the first time.
