The Portuguese scored a hat-trick in Real's 5-2 win over Real Sociedad, taking his tally to 11 goals in LaLiga this season. In so doing, he scored his 33rd LaLiga hat-trick, five more than Messi, who has scored 28 trebles in the Spanish top flight so far.

Ronaldo scored Los Blancos' second goal with his right foot, the fourth with his head, and the fifth with his left foot to complete a so-called "perfect" hat-trick. It was the eighth perfect hat-trick of his career, while Messi is yet to achieve one.

After log leaders FC Barcelona drew on the weekend, Ronaldo's goals helped Real cut their massive gap on the Blaugrana from 19 to 17 points.
