Fenerbahce have earned a 1-0 win at Viktoria Plzen in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 encounter.

Pierre Webo headed in with nine minutes left on the clock to give the Turks a vital away goal ahead of the return clash.

The best opening of a lively first half fell to the hosts as Frantisek Rajtoral's effort rattled the crossbar.

Fenerbahce took control of the second period and created a number of chances after the hour.

Cristian Baroni had his strike saved by Plzen goalkeeper Matus Kozacik before Moussa Sow and Reto Ziegler both failed with their attempts.

However, the Turks finally made the breakthrough in the 81st minute when Webo nodded in from close range.
