Mark Schwarzer says Fulham will push Juventus all the way as they try and make home advantage count in their Europa League second leg tonight.

Trailing 3-1 from the first leg in Turin, Roy Hodgson’s side will need to produce yet another big performance at Craven Cottage and the Australian goalkeeper says it’s up to them to set the tempo.

The game is there to be won. We know Juventus are a very good side and we’ll have to be on top form if we’re going to go through.

But it’s all about having the self-belief that you can go and win the game. We’re more than capable of doing that. The style of play and the type of pressure that we can apply at home is something that can work very much in our favour.

It’s our job to make life very difficult for Juve. If we put them under enough pressure and perform well on the night, there’s every chance that we can cause an upset at the Cottage.

The Italian teams are not used to playing in this type of stadium. They’re not used to the type of in-your-face’ football and pressure that we can create and also the support that we have at home. At 3-1 we’re not out of it.
