The Portuguese was the Man of the Match as Los Blancos thumped their crosstown rivals 3-0, scoring all three goals on Tuesday night.

Ronaldo netted only twice in the group stages and drew two blanks against Napoli in the Round of 16, and it seemed Messi would run away with this season's Golden Boot for the competition.

However, with his hat-trick against Atletico, as well as his quintuple against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals, Rronaldo is now within reach of Messi's total of 11 goals, with the Argentine unable to add any more strikes to his tally.

The 32-year-old is likely to have two more games to net at least one more strike and match Messi's total.

The other top goalscorers left in the competition all sit on five strikes each – they are Gonzalo Higuain, who netted a brace against Monaco on Wednesday night, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann, Radamel Falcao and teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe.

Here are the top 10 goalscorers in the UCL this season:

1) Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 11 goals

2) Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – 10 goals [+3 goals] **

3) Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain) – 8 goals

4) Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) – 8 goals

5) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) – 7 goals

6) Gonzalo Higuain (Juventus) – 5 goals [+2 goals]**

7) Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid) – 5 goals**

8) Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) – 5 goals**

9) Kylian Mbappe (Monaco) – 5 goals**

10) Radamel Falcao (Monaco) – 5 goals**

** Players still in this season's competition.
