GIF: Soldado Scores Hat-Trick as Tottenham Ease Past Anzhi Makhachkala

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterDecember 12, 2013

Tottenham raced into a 2-0 lead over Anzhi Makhachkala in their final Europa League group game thanks to a brace of goals from Roberto Soldado

First, the Spaniard got just the right touch on a free kick from Gylfi Sigurdsson to put his side 1-0 ahead.

He then doubled that advantage with a classy finish low into the far corner—Erik Lamela doing an equally good job to lay the chance on. 

In the second half he sealed his hat-trick—his first for Tottenham—from the penalty spot.

Spurs had already sealed qualification to the last 32 before the game started, but they looked set to apply some gloss to their position with a perfect record of six wins from six matches.
