Cristiano Ronaldo scores hat-trick as Madrid blast past Sevilla
Madrid: Real Madrid and star player Cristiano Ronaldo warmed up for Wednesday`s Champions League match at home to Manchester United with a comfortable 4-1 win over Sevilla.
Ronaldo scored a hat-trick after Karim Benzema had opened the scoring for Madrid.
Ronaldo`s first goal was a magnificent left foot shot from outside of the Sevilla area, his second was the result of some poor defending from Madrid`s rivals.
The former Manchester United striker`s third goal came with 20 minutes remaining, while Manu Del Moral netted a late consolation for Sevilla.
Both sides ended up with a player less after Gonzalo Higuain was sent off for Madrid and Hedwinges Maduro also saw red for Sevilla.
