Ilicic tears up record books as four-goal hero sends Atalanta into Champions League quarter-finals

The Slovenian forward made history as his memorable campaign continued with a match-winning performance at Mestalla
Josip Ilicic wrote himself into the record books by scoring four goals for Atalanta against Valencia to break Zlatan Ibrahimovic's record and become the oldest player to score an away hat-trick in the Champions League.
The Slovenian, aged 32 years and 41 days, struck twice in each half to secure a 4-3 victory on the night for the Italian side and an 8-4 win on aggregate to seal their place in the quarter-finals.
He beats the previous record held by former Sweden striker Ibrahimovic, who was aged 32 years and 20 days when he scored four goals for Paris Saint-Germain against Anderlecht in October 2013.
