Rather sloppy to let a free kick slip in at his near post in what was his only real test of the night.
Got forward very well to support the attack, as BATE's lack of offensive punch left him with barely anything to do in his own half.
Strong at the back as he dominated in the air when BATE elected to hoof balls into his box in a desperate bid to create something.
Games such as this will never be a true examination of his credentials, as he was rarely tested by a stagnant offensive effort from the visitors.
Given barely anything to think about in defence by the visitors, but was sloppy to give away a free kick that was converted by Bressen for BATE’s first goal.
His passing and vision always left BATE on the back foot, and he set up Feghouli’s goal with a perfectly weighted pass to split two defenders. Seemed set to boss the midfield, but a horrendous mistake late on allowed the visitors back into the game.
Never looked like being bettered today as he controlled the midfield from start to finish. Comfortable on the ball, and not afraid to track back and put himself about. Class showing.
Often got the better of Bordachev in their tussles on the flanks, and was able to create a few goalscoring opportunities for the home side. Nearly scored himself with a half volley that flashed off target, but was far more deadly in the second half as he slotted home a counterattack to make it 3-0, before ending the game with a half-volley at the far post.
Buzzed about the left flank with intent, and won a penalty after a fortuitous decision by the referee on a challenge that occurred just outside the area. A consistent threat for the home side, and stretched play well.
Formed a dangerous attacking quartet with Guardado, Feghouli and Soldao. Opened the scoring with a somewhat fortuitous half volleyed finish, but the goal was just reward for his effort on the night, as he showed great ability in advanced positions.
Lucky to still be on the pitch after a petulant kick on Bordachev, and the decision may have well cost BATE as they suffered from his movement and guile leading the line. Buried a confident penalty in the first-half to make it 2-0.
Could do nothing to stop the goals, but did not inspire much confidence.
Struggled to contain Feghouli, and was left bamboozled by the Algerian, who beat him several times, including one humiliating dribble just before half time.
Tried hard in the first-half, but as the game wore on, fatigue seemed to be affecting him as Valencia breached his flank more and more.
His play at the back prevented the scoreline from being even higher, as he halted a number of dangerous attacks in their tracks.
Conceded a penalty for a trip on Guardado, though he was somewhat unlucky as the incident occurred just outside the box.
Came alive later in the second-half, as he found a few avenues forward out wide. Never able to add a consistent end product to his play though.
Rarely got much going out on the right wing, and often seemed isolated. His side could have used some more impetus from him.
The former Arsenal man found it hard to inspire his team in attack, as Valencia’s midfield played with far more purpose and energy. Bypassed in the centre of the park multiple times.
Brought BATE back into the game with a free kick that sneaked in at the near post, and was effective when leading the rare forays into the Valencia half. Gave the hosts a lot to think about in the latter stages of the game.
NA inadequate job shielding the defence, as the likes of Jonas and Feghouli were allowed to run riot. Left chasing shadows all over the pitch.
Registered an assist for Mozolevski's late goal, but was otherwise a peripheral figure in the match. Forced to feed off scraps for most of the contest.
