Alcacer Paco's second-half goal helps Valencia advance through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Valencia have defeated Ludogorets Razgrad 4-0 on aggregate to comfortably advance through to the Europa League quarter-finals.

The home side had the first real chance of the game which fell to Javi Fuego, who rose above the opposition defence to connect with a corner kick, but his effort was well kept out by Vladislav Stoyanov.

The Spanish side continued to push for an opening goal on the night, and it very nearly came through Daniel Parejo who struck an effort towards the top corner, which was again saved by Stoyanov in the Razgrad goal.

Los Che did eventually make the breakthrough with an hour played as Alcacer Paco placed his header beyond the keeper to give his side a 4-0 aggregate lead.

Roman Bezjak almost pulled one back for the visitors after receiving a pass in the opposition box, though he was unable to beat Diego Alves with Valencia seeing the game out comfortably.
