Champions League Group F is shaping up to be one of the most hotly-contested of the eight pools and is a tight affair after three games with Valencia, BATE Borisov and Bayern Munich all locked on six points.

A hat-trick from Roberto Soldado ensured Valencia were convincing 3-0 winners in Belarus. The Spain striker opened the scoring from the penalty spot just before half-time and struck twice more in the second half to sink BATE.

Bayern, meanwhile, hit back from their shock loss to BATE last time out to edge past Lille 1-0, courtesy of Thomas Muller's 20th-minute penalty. The result means Lille have lost all three of their matches so far, conceding six goals in the process.
