Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo is unbeatable. He has scored another hat-trick at the Champions League, earning himself the distinction of being the 4th highest scorer in the league history. This would also count as his second Champions League hat-trick.

So far, Ronaldo scored 27 career goals, beating Lionel Messi's 26 goals. In the Champions League, Ronaldo is behind Raul with 71, Lionel Messi with 59 and Ruud van Nistelrooy with 56 goals.

During the match, newcomer Bale gave a free kick that landed the ball at Ronaldo's feet, giving him an easy goal. The team went on to win the game with a 6-1 score against Galatasaray in a Group B clash.

Ronaldo was quoted by the BBC as saying that such a start gives the club a lot of confidence. "In the first few minutes they had their best chances. After our first goal we controlled the game and played well,” he said.
