Ronaldo Hat-Trick Leads Real Past Atletico

Spanish La Liga

Result: Atletico Madrid 0-3 Real Madrid 

Date: 19 November 2016

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Cristiano Ronaldo netted a hat-trick to inspire Real Madrid to a 3-0 win over cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.

Karim Benzema had to settle for a spot on the bench, as Ronaldo led the attack, while Lucaz Vazquez was also handed a start.

Jan Oblak came to Atletico's rescue in the 12th minute, as the shot-stopper produced a superb save to keep out Ronaldo's towering header.

Los Blancos broke the deadlock after 23 minutes when Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick took a deflection off Savic and sailed into the far corner.

Atletico, meanwhile, struggled to carve out any clear-cut chances, while Antoinne Griezmann had no joy against the Real defence.

Nonetheless, the score remained 1-0 in favour of the visitors as the sides entered the halftime break.

Diego Simeone opted for a double change after the hour-mark, as Angel Correa and Kevin Gameiro replaced Gabi and Fernando Torres.

Real were awarded a penalty after 69 minutes when Ronaldo was brought down in the box. The Portuguese forward stepped up and made no mistake from 12-yards out, 2-0.

Ronaldo completed his hat-trick in the 77th minute after turning Gareth Bale's inch-perfect cross to seal the victory for Los Blancos, 3-0.

Zinedine Zidane used the final stages to hand some minutes to Benzema and Marco Asensio, as they saw out the remaining stages of the clash.
