A hat-trick from Roberto Soldado fired Valencia CF to their second UEFA Champions League victory of the season and brought an emphatic end to FC BATE Borisov's perfect Group F record.

Soldado put the visitors ahead from the spot on the cusp of half-time and, moments after the hosts had been denied an equaliser, doubled the Liga side's lead with a 55th-minute volley. He completed his second treble in Europe's premier club competition midway through the half as BATE, victors against FC Bayern München on matchday two, were brought crashing back down to earth.

Match in 5

  • Soldado scores second UEFA Champions League hat-trick
  • BATE's first defeat of campaign, Valencia's second win
  • Valencia top Group F on goal difference
  • Group still wide open with three teams on six points
  • BATE without a win against Spanish opposition in seven attempts

Reaction

We are in a good place with a home game against BATE coming next. I still think that our team can improve a lot, but I am happy.

We made a huge amount of mistakes in midfield. At this level they always make you pay for that. Our opponents studied us really well, they forced us into errors.
