It was only a matter of time for Cristiano Ronaldo.
After failing to find the back of the net in Real Madrid's first two La Liga matches (a relative "crisis" for a man of Ronaldo's goalscoring exploits), the Portuguese superstar opened his account for the season in just the seventh minute of Madrid's match at Espanyol.
Ronaldo latched on to the end of a long ball and calmly slotted home to the far post.
Ronaldo got his brace on 16 minutes, converting from the penalty spot after Gareth Bale drew a penalty.
Just minutes later, Ronaldo got his hat-trick in just 20 minutes, turning in a cross from Bale.
The feat sees him join some impressive ranks in goalscoring history.
For good measure, Ronaldo hit his fourth goal in the second half.
The goal moved him past Raul as Real Madrid's all-time scoring leader.
Ronaldo hit his fifth goal later.
