Cristiano Ronaldo is never in a goal drought for long.

The 31-year-old superstar had gone two games without scoring a goal and he’d only scored twice in six La Liga games before Real Madrid’s 4-1 win over Alaves on Saturday.

So, the Portuguese forward thought it was about time for another hat trick.

Scoring either side of half time, Ronaldo also had a penalty kick saved but he now has a record number of hat tricks in Spain’s top flight with 38.

Incredible.

Check out the videos below to see all three of his goals as Ronaldo finally looks to be over the knee injury which kept him out of action from for the opening months of this season.

Good to have you back to your best, Ronny.


After Alaves took a shock 1-0 lead, Ronaldo scored twice in the first half with a penalty kick and a thunderous effort.

He then completed his hat trick after a marvelous assist from Marcelo.
