Ronaldo nets in seventh hat trick of the season
Ronaldo got his seventh hat trick of the season as Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 4-1 on Wednesday. His first goal came through a wonderful free kick in the 25th minute which the keeper just watched helplessly as the ball entered the net.
Falcao got an equalizer for the home team in the 55th minute putting pressure on the league leaders who entered the match with just a point above Barcelona. Ronaldo got his second goal of the night in the 68th minute and completed it three from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute. Jose Maria Callejon got the last goal of the match three minutes later to seal the victory for Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has now scored 40 league goals this season, a goal more than Lionel Messi but both players have 60 goals each in all competitions this season.
