The Spain striker has talked up the importance of Los Che's win, and believes that his team should treat the remaining group games as 'finals'
Three second-half Soldado goals were enough for the Spanish side, who sit top of Group F on goal difference with both BATE and Bayern Munich, with all three teams on six points after three games.
"First, collectively, we've needed to win away from home for a long time," explained the striker, speaking to sportyou.es.
"Individually, it was an important game for me too. Getting goals is always critical for a striker, and that is even more the case in the Champions League. I just hope I can do it in the league so that we can climb the table.
The Spain international then went on to explain how the score-line was important, and how he hopes Los Che will approach the rest of their European campaign.
"Now we have the goal difference in our favour. The match was a final and the rest of the games will be too. At Mestalla we have to win both of our remaining games, and if we succeed, we will qualify," he said.
