Carlos Soler scored a hat-trick of penalties for Valencia as the team won 4-1 at home against La Liga champions Real Madrid on Sunday.
After Karim Benzema put Madrid ahead, Valencia eventually equalised with what would become the first of Soler’s three penalties, after a re-take was ordered after a VAR review.
Valencia then went into the lead before half-time via an own goal from Raphael Varane – again, after another VAR review.
Soler became only the third player in the history of La Liga to score three penalties in a single match.
Earlier on Sunday, Real Sociedad beat Granada 2-0 to return to the top of La Liga. The club tweeted ‘STOP THE COUNT!’ to mimic the tweet from Donald Trump last week, disputing the results of the US election.
