Fulham concluded their pre-season preparations with a 2-2 draw at a sunny Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Fulham concluded their pre-season preparations with a 2-2 draw at a sunny Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

All the goals came in the first-half with Aleksandar Mitrović reintroducing himself to the Fulham faithful after just three minutes when his low strike opened the scoring.

Dennis Eckert replied quickly before Aboubakar Kamara made it 2-1 with barely 16-minutes played, a header from Gustavo Cabral tied things up just before the break.

Slaviša Jokanović made six changes to the team that lost 1-0 to Sampdoria on Wednesday night with Cyrus Christie, Tim Ream, Ryan Sesegnon, Jean Michaël Seri, Kamara and Mitrović replacing Marlon Fossey, Denis Odoi, Steven Sessegnon, Ibrahima Cisse, Luca de la Torre and Rui Fonte.

Celta Vigo named a strong line-up which included Iago Aspas as part of a dangerous front-three with former Fulham man Jozabed named among the replacements.

Mitrović opened the scoring in the third minute of the game when he spun away from the Celta defenders and rifled a shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the goal.

It didn’t take long for the visitors to respond however and Eckret got his head on the end of a Celta Vigo cross and guided the ball into the net on six minutes.

In the 10th minute Iago Aspas found Pione Sisto running into the box but his shot was fired straight into the arms of Fabri.

After some more fine footwork from Mitrović, the Serbian found Kamara on the right and the forward pulled the trigger on the edge of the box, nestling his shot in the bottom left-hand corner of the goal in the 16th minute.

Mitrović was once again at the heart of the action when Cairney’s eye of the needle pass almost reached his outstretched foot but the ball just eluded the big Serbian.

Just after the half-hour mark, a neat cross from Sisto found Celta Vigo captain Hugo Mallo but his header rattled the crossbar before being cleared by the Fulham defence.

Fulham had been warned though, and Celta Vigo looked powerful in the air, Cabral’s header from a free-kick tied things up just before the break in the 41st minute.

Antonio Mohamed made his first change of the game at half-time with Emre Mor replacing the goal-scorer Cabral.

With 53 minutes gone, Eckret showed great control to chest the ball down to Sisto in the Fulham box, but the winger’s effort went high and wide.

Six minutes later it was Mitrović using his size and strength in the opposite box to bully his way to getting a low powerful effort off, it fell the wrong side of the back-post.

On the hour mark Cairney was replaced by Stefan Johansen, while the Spaniards made several changes with David Costas, Jozabed, Brais Mendez, Andrew Hjulsager and Claude Beauvue coming on for Nestor Araujo, Francisco Beltran, Sisto, Aspas and Eckret.

There was a drinks break in the 69th minute and Jokanović used this as an opportunity to replace Andre Schürrle with Steven Sessegnon. 

Immediately after the break Beauvue was through on goal, and opened his body up but Fabri made a tremendous save to deny the forward.

With ten minutes to go both sides made a double change with Mitrović receiving a thunderous applause for his display, he was replaced by Nesskens Kebano, while Fossey came on for Christie.

Celta Vigo swapped David Junca for Robert Mazan and Mallo for Kevin Vasquez.

With time running out, and Fulham pressing for a winner Kevin McDonald fired an effort from outside the box but it was well wide of hitting the target.

Celta made one further change with Juan Antonio Roz replacing Facundo Roncaglia in the 90+1st minute, but things ended all square with the Whites now preparing for a Premier League battle with Crystal Palace at Craven Cottage a week today.
