Cristiano Ronaldo scores perfect hat-trick in 10 minutes v Getafe
The Bernabeu rose as one to acclaim Cristiano Ronaldo on Sunday lunchtime as the Portuguese forward scored a ten minute hat-trick to delight the home crowd.
And it wasn’t just any old hat-trick – left foot, header followed by a right-footed penalty means it was a perfect treble.
Madrid based newspaper AS have proclaimed Ronaldo as “Superman” and the stats of late suggest he may well be from another planet.
Ronaldo has now scored 21 goals in his last 20 matches. And so far this calendar year has notched 10 goals in just six games.
In total, Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed 19 hat-tricks for Real Madrid which pans out at better than 1 every 10 matches.
Interestingly, for fans of the Premier League, Ronaldo claimed just one hat-trick during his time at Manchester United…
Cristiano Ronaldo’s perfect 10-minute hat-trick v Getafe is on the video below.
