Graziano Pelle marked his Southampton debut with two goals as Ronald Koeman's men eased past Belgian minnows Sporting Hasselt.
The Italian striker opened the scoring in the fifth minute and added his second just past the half-hour as the Saints eased to a 6-0 victory.
Second half goals from Sam McQueen, Emmanuel Mayuka, Sam Gallagher and an own goal completed the scoring against the Belgian third division side.
Gary Gardner put Villa in front in the 85th minute and Bent scored his second when he headed home an Andreas Weimann cross in the final minute.
