No one has more hat-tricks than Ronaldo

It is no exaggeration to say that Cristiano Ronaldo is making history with each passing game. The Portuguese star continues to smash La Liga records that had stood the test of time.

The latest mark to fall under Ronaldo’s spell concerns the number of hat-tricks he has hit in the Spanish top flight. By scoring three times against Athletic at the Bernabéu, the forward moved level with legends Alfredo di Stéfano and Telmo Zarra on 22 La Liga trebles.

Sunday’s was the 29-year-old’s third league hat-trick of the season, having previously put three past Deportivo and Elche.

Lionel Messi, Ronaldo’s biggest rival and his nemesis in the pursuit of records, has bagged 18 La Liga trebles to date.
