Cristiano Ronaldo Scores 50th Career Hat-Trick Adding a Fourth

Ronald was once again instrumental for Zinedine Zidane's men when his side hosted seventh-placed Girona at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo's resurgence mirrors how he hit his peak at the back end of last season when, with the help of sitting out the occasional away game, he fired Real to a double of La Liga and the Champions League. Madrid thumped Girona 5-3 on matchday 29 of Spanish league (La Liga) and are now fourth in the league table.

Lionel Messi's 25th LaLiga goal of the season kept Barcelona on track for the 2017/18 LaLiga title, during a weekend which also saw Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo make up ground in the "pichichi" top scorers" race with a four goal "poker'. He then laid on a pass for Lucas Vazquez to score Real's third.

Since the bet was said to have been made, Ronaldo has scored 21 goals in Spain's top flight, while Messi has notched 13 over the same period.

Ronaldo struck four times in total, as well as providing an assist, to take his total for the season to 37 goals in all competitions, meaning he has now scored more in 2018 (17) than Manchester United (15). "We scored some spectacular goals that came from the whole team", said the former French soccer legend, via Sky Sports.

"On a personal level he has 22 goals, three behind Messi, so I hope [that goes well] for him, as when he is good, the team is good".

Cristiano's lawyers are understood to have offered the Agencia Estatal de Administración Tributaria (AEAT) 3.8m euros, plus an admission of wrongdoing, in exchange for dropping criminal proceedings against the player.

Madrid have a trip to Las Palmas to look forward to after the global break on March 31 before they face Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
