The victory over their Belarussian opponents was enough to take Los Che top of Group F ahead of Bayern Munich on goal difference, but both of them are only three points ahead of BATE with two games remaining.
While Wednesday's triumph was Valencia's third in a row following a slow start to the season, Pellegrino insists his side's place in the knockout round is still far from guaranteed, and insists there's plenty of room for improvement.
"I didn't like the goals we conceded tonight [Wednesday]," he said on UEFA's official website. "Overall we played a disciplined match but if you make mistakes, BATE score goals.
"We are slowly finding positive details in the team but there are things to improve.
"These are three important points for us [but] we still have to play against Bayern here, and that will be the decisive game. The group is still not completely settled.
"If BATE win their next match they will be there, but we depend on ourselves."
Valencia are next in action on Sunday when they visit Real Valladolid in La Liga.
