Valencia ensured that at least one Spanish side qualified for the next round with a crushing victory over Legia Warsaw. The much criticised Pablo Aimar finally came good with probably his best game for his side, and he was the creator of the first two goals, the first for Albelda and then for Ilie with just over a quarter of an hour gone. Legia's Kowalewski was injured in a clash with Ayala, and although he carried on he was beaten twice more before half time, first of all with a rare strike from Djukic and then from an Aimar penalty after Juan Sánchez was brought down by the unfortunate keeper.

Fabio Aurelio made his first appearance after recovering from injury after the break, replacing a tired Carboni. Valencia carried on where they left off, with Kily González hitting the post and Sánchez seeing his effort saved by the keeper before he finally got the goal he was looking for, once again after good work by Aimar. Substitute Svitlica got one back for the visitors only three minutes after coming on, but almost immediately Angulo made it six to wrap up an easy win. They will have their work cut out in the next round however, with a difficult draw against Scottish champions Celtic.
