Ronaldo Treble Sinks Sevilla

Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Real Madrid to a 4-1 win over Sevilla with a superb hat-trick on Saturday night.

The Portugal international's ball into the area set up Karim Benzema's opener before the star attacker tucked away the rest of the goals.

The first strike arrived 17 minutes into the game when Ronaldo's pass into the area came off the face of the sliding Navarro and landed at the feet of Benzema with the Frenchman tapping it over on the line.

Madrid would then double their advantage six minutes later when Ronaldo latched onto a pass from Kaka before smashing the ball home from 25 yards out.

The visitors could have pulled a goal back in the 32nd minute but Antonio Reyes was denied by a great save from Lopez while Sergio Ramos was denied from a corner just before the break.

The hosts would further extend their lead just two minutes into the second-half when a mistake at the back allowed Ronaldo to get in and he fired his finish across the goalkeeper and in.

Alvaro Negredo just missed out on a low cross into the area in the 55th minute but the game would be put to bed four minutes later when Ronaldo exchanged passes with Higuain before tapping in his third.

The visitors would be given hope in the 66th minute when Higuain clipped Navarro's feet to earn his second yellow card and was sent off.

Sevilla would then lose their one-man advantage in the 81st minute when Maduro was sent off after sliding in on Michael Essien to earn his second yellow.

Sevilla tried to find a route back into the game but they could only manage a consolation strike through Manu with three minutes to go as Madrid claimed the victory.
