Roberto Soldado scored a hattrick in Tottenham’s Europa League win against Anzhi. The result was 4:1, and Hotspurs got through to the next round of Europa League with flawless score – 6 wins from 6 games.
Villas-Boas squad secured their qualification from this group long before the last night’s match, but this game will maybe prove it’s importance in forthcoming days, because of the Soldado clinical performance.
Former Valencia man scored only three goals from game (not including penalty kicks) for Tottenham this season. With this hattrick, Soldado can now get desperately needed confidence and calmness in the decisive moments of the game, and push Hotspurs forward in their Premier league campaign.
This weekend Tottenham plays huge derby game against Liverpool on their White Hart Lane stadium. Victory would be very important, maybe even a turning point for the whole season. For that desperately needed victory, Soldado must be on high level, and produce goods for his team. We will see if he can play on high level for two consecutive games.
