Willian scored his second halftime penalty kick.

In the seventh minute, Alex Iwobi gave the home team the lead by side-footing Antonee Robinson’s cutback between Wolves custodian Jose Sa’s legs.

After twenty-two minutes, Matheus Cunha equalised for the visitors, heading in a cross from Jean-Ricner Bellegarde after the Frenchman had expertly beaten Robinson down the right.

Just before the hour, Willian gave Fulham their first penalty of the match after Nelson Semedo had fouled Tom Cairney on the edge of the box.

However, Wolves soon had a spot-kick of their own in the last 20 minutes, as the South Korean winger scored Wolves’ second equalizer from 12 yards after Tim Reem bundled over Hwang Hee-chan.

To obtain all three points, Fulham rode their luck and took advantage of another late penalty call.
