Ronaldinho scored a brilliant hat-trick against Siena, as AC Milan had an easy outing on Sunday. A whopping 4-0 victory took Leonardo Araújo's side within six points of Serie A league leader Inter Milan.
It all started when Siena goalkeeper Gianluca Curci brought down striker Marco Borriello and subsequently received a straight red card for his heroics. Ronaldinho confidently scored from the spot.
Borriello then went on to score the second goal for Milan as he volleyed in Andrea Pirlo's cross. The game was all but over at this point of time; the away side was already two goals down with just 10 men after 28 minutes.
Milan continued their dominating performance after the halftime. In the 72nd minute, Ronaldinho nodded in David Beckham's corner to make it 3-0 for Milan.
Later on, with just one minute from time, Ronaldinho scored his hat-trick with a stunning wonder strike from 30 yards out, which reminded of his heydays.
Ronaldinho scored his first hat-trick for Rossoneri after joining from Barca and continued his fine form with plenty of goals in this season.
Pressure must be back on Inter with the Milan derby to come next week.
