Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Real overpowered meek Atlético at the Bernabeu. A dynamite Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick saw Real Madrid earn a 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid in their Champions League semifinal first leg.
That Cristiano Ronaldo, huh? That’s his 42nd hat-trick in a Real Madrid shirt.Three goals in a European Cup semi-final for a player who has supposedly seen better days.
