It took eight shots and a handful of step-overs, but Cristiano Ronaldo got his goal for Real Madrid. 

Ronaldo performed three consecutive step-overs at an alarming rate to helpless Schalke defender Joel Matip, then unleashed a thunderous shot to the far corner for Madrid's third goal.

 For good measure, and not to be outdone by his teammates Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale, who had both already gotten their braces, Ronaldo got his second in the waning minutes to put a finishing touch on the 6-1 blowout.
