Cristiano Ronaldo hit an impressive hat-trick as Real Madrid won 5-1 at home to Real Sociedad in the Spanish league on Saturday at the Bernabeu. Ronaldo also assisted a fourth goal, while Karim Benzema and Sami Khedira tallied once each.

Ronaldo opened the scoring early, collecting Benzema's cross on the right side of the box before controlling with a touch and firing into the net for a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute.

Real doubled their lead six minutes later, and Ronaldo was involved again. Dribbling down the left, Ronaldo picked out Benzema with a pass into the box.

Benzema placed his finish in the far corner for a 2-0 lead.

Ronaldo then made it 3-0 with a penalty in the 26th minute. He shot straight down the middle, with Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo diving to his right.

Sami Khedira scored Real's fourth in the 36th minute, assisted by Gareth Bale.

Ronaldo completed his hat-trick with a curling free kick in the 76th minute.
