Juventus are new favourites to win Europa League

Juventus are the new Europa League favourites after their 3-1 victory over Fulham on Thursday night.

Fulham struggled in the first half at the Stadio Olimpico and conceded twice to goals from Nicola Legrottaglie and Jonathan Zebina.

Dickson Etuhu pulled one back for Fulham but David Trezeguet's third goal just before halftime emphasised the gulf in class between the two sides.

The bookmakers have Juve their favourites to go on and lift the trophy - at a best price of 7/1 before the night's action. Fulham are out at 66s.

Liverpool had begun the day as the tournament favourites but they've drifted after slipping to a 1-0 defeat at Lille (20s).

Hamburg are at 10/1 after a 3-1 win against Anderlecht, with Valencia and Marseille also in the top six options after draws with Werder Bremen and Benfica respectively.
