Red cards cost Fulham in Europe

Erik Nevland is sent off

Fulham were hit by two red cards as they lost their latest Europa League match 2-1 away to Roma in Italy.

Fulham scored first when Diomansy Kamara netted a penalty, but things went wrong after half-time when Erik Nevland was sent off.

Roma then equalised and later took the lead, before Paul Konchesky was also sent off in the closing minutes.

Everton were 2-0 losers in their match against Benfica, while Celtic could only draw 0-0 against Hamburg.

Everton have struggled for form in recent weeks and haven't won a match since 1 October in any competition.

Javier Saviola and Oscar Cardozo both scored in the second half for the Portuguese side, but Everton still have a good chance of qualifying for the next round.

But Celtic may struggle to reach the next stage after being held to a draw by German side Hamburg.

Both sides had some good chances but it was the goalkeepers who came out on top. Celtic now need to win their final two matches in Group C, and hope Hamburg lose both of theirs.
