Sochaux 0-2 Fulham (0-3 on aggregate)

Sylvain Legwinski and Barry Hayles scored as Fulham brushed aside Sochaux 2-0 to secure a 3-0 aggregate win and seal an Intertoto Cup final place.

The Cottagers took a slim 1-0 lead into their second-leg match in France, but Jean Tigana's team eventually overcame their French opponents with two second-half goals.

Fulham will now meet Italian club Bologna for a place in the Uefa Cup.

Sochaux enjoyed some good first-half opportunities, with Sylvain Monsoreau denied by a goal-line clearance from Alain Goma in the 14th minute.

Mickael Isabey then almost lobbed Fulham goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar from 30 yards, but the Holland international pulled off a last-gasp save.

Fulham's best first-half chance came from Louis Saha, who headed a Steed Malbranque free-kick goalwards only for Sochaux goalkeeper Jean-Baptiste Daguet to brilliantly save.

But the visitors dominated the second half and took the lead through Legwinski, who headed home a Sean Davis free-kick after 64 minutes.

Sochaux might have bounced straight back, but Maxence Flachez headed over when well placed.

Hayles then had a header cleared off the line before smashing the ball home with his left foot to put the tie beyond Sochaux.
