Vietto stars in Valencia rout

Luciano Viuetto netted a treble – including a goal of the season contender – as Valencia defeated Las Palmas 4-0 in the Copa Del Rey.

Los Che marched into the last eight with a 5-1 aggregate victory over Paco Jemez’s side as Vietto – who had not scored for parent club Atletico Madrid this season – starred.

He opened the scoring on the half-hour mark after Simone Zaza’s effort was initially saved before doubling the lead just after the break with a dink over Las Palmas goalkeeper Raul Lizoain.

Nemanja Maksimovic then hammered home his first goal for the club shortly after as Valencia turned on the style before Vietto completed his hat-trick against the sorry islanders with an outrageous effort from barely inside the Las Palmas half.
