Carlos Soler scored three goals all from the spot kick to give Valencia a 4-1 win against Real Madrid in a La Liga game at the Estadio Mestalla on Sunday.

Karim Benzema opened the scoring for Real Madrid with a powerful strike from outside the box but Valencia equalized with a retaken Carlos Soler penalty.

For the first penalty, Lucas Vasquez who was a make shift right back gave away the penalty when a cross hit his hand in the 18-yard.

It became two for Valencia just before the half time after Raphael Varane in an attempt to clear a ball looped the ball over Thibaut Courtois.

The Belgian goalkeeper and the French defender eventually cleared the ball but it had already crossed the goal line.

Marcelo was the guilty party for the the second penalty after his reckless tackle on Gomes was given as a penalty, Carlos Soler stepped up and scored his second of the day.

He completed his hat-trick after Sergio Ramos handled the ball game in an attempt to clear the ball, again, Carlos Soler scored the resulting penalty.

Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and Lucas Vazquez all conceded penalties for Real Madrid at Valencia. The only defender who did not was Raphael Varane, who instead scored an own goal.

The loss means, Real Madrid have lost all their games each time they put on their pink kits after defeats against Manchester City, Cardiz and Valencia.
