BURSASPOR 1 (Batalla 69)

Mata violently converted a gift of penalty before destroying the Turks with a magnificent performance to rival any in the tournament this season. He made the second with an exquisite angled pass with his left foot and also had a hand in the third, returning Alba's throw-in with a back heel volleyed pass which Aduriz converted at the second attempt. Joaquin made it four with a fine strike from the edge of the box. Soldado raced clear of Bursaspor's offside trap to score a fifth. Batalla ensured there was no whitewash. Mata finished the first set with a fabulously weighted pass to Dominguez.

Fletcher marked his 50th Champions League appearance with his second Champions League goal. Two of United's lesser lights grabbed the headlines.

VALENCIA 3 (Soldado 33, Soldado 71, Costa 90)

McGregor flapped at a corner and Soldado screwed the ball into an empty net. In KEEPING with the theme of the night another goalkeeping blunder gifted Soldado his second, McGregor overcommitted himself when attempting to close down the angle as Soldado ran in from the left then could only parry the striker's shot into his own net. Miguel found Tino Costa, who has looked great in the Champions League, free on the back post and the Argentinean slammed the third in off the woodwork.
