Three for Zaza as Valencia thrash Malaga


Valencia have thrashed Malaga 5-0 in La Liga with Simone Zaza scoring a hat-trick.

The result leaves Malaga pointless at the bottom of the table and sends Valencia up to third.

Santi Mina scored the first after 17 minutes from a Carlos Soler assist and then Zaza took over with an eight-minute hat-trick.

His first came from another Soler cross on 54 minutes before netting on the hour mark and again two minutes later.

Zaza was withdrawn soon after and Rodrigo Moreno, who replaced him, added a fifth four minutes from time.
