According to the renowned statesman, the 39-year-old and 241-day attacker has become the oldest footballer to score a triplet in the Spanish league.

The rival team responded and equalized the score through Daniel Rodríguez (24 ′), but they could not do more. Already in the second half, the inspired forward controlled a rebound on the edge of the small area and fired violently at the top of the goal defended by Manolo Reina (61 ′).
