|Cristiano Ronaldo's Best Hat Tricks In 10 Different Competitions. CL To WC by drewsman(m): 7:34pm On Jan 07, 2020|
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Serie A hat trick
for Juventus on Monday -- the TENTH different
competition in which he's scored three goals in a
game. Here's our pick of the best from each one...
Cristiano Ronaldo went gallivanting past yet another
incredible milestone on Monday by scoring three
times in Juventus' 4-0 win over Cagliari.
With that, Ronaldo joins Alexis Sanchez as the only
two players to have scored hat tricks in Serie A,
Premier League and La Liga since the turn of the
In notching his 56th senior hat trick for club and
country (for the record, Lionel Messi has 53 career
trebles), Ronaldo also became the very first
Portuguese player to score a hat trick in the Italian
Oh, and his three-goal haul also saw the Juve star
break brand-new ground by registering a hat trick in
TEN different major competitions.
Not a bad track record, all things considered,
though there is one missing -- the UEFA European
Here's our pick of Ronaldo's best hat tricks from
each respective competition.
Seeing as Ronaldo has only scored one hat trick in
Italy thus far, picking a favourite isn't too difficult.
Ronaldo only scored one hat trick in the Premier
League, too -- the first of his career -- as part of
Manchester United's hefty 6-0 demolition of
Newcastle back in 2008.
In what proved to be a dominant 2011-12 season,
Real crushed city rivals Atletico at the Vicente
Calderon during their title run-in as Ronaldo pitched
in with a 35-yard free kick, an angled 20-yard drive
and a cute penalty.
FIFA World Cup qualifying
Beginning with an acrobatic scissor kick, Ronaldo's
hat trick against the Faroe Islands in 2017 was lent
added significance by the fact it saw him overtake
Brazil legend Pele in terms of international goals.
UEFA EURO qualifying
By the end of 2019, Lithuania were thoroughly sick
of the sight of Ronaldo, as the Portugal talisman
scored seven goals in two games against them just
65 days apart. The last of these goals was his 98th
international strike -- he enters 2020 on 99 for his
country. It was also in Euro 2020 qualifying when
Ronaldo scored the 700th goal of his senior career,
putting him in a very exclusive club that includes
some of the game's greats..
Copa del Rey
Ronaldo scored two hat tricks for Real Madrid in
the Copa del Rey, three years apart -- the best
being his aesthetically pleasing haul against Celta
Vigo in 2013.
FIFA Club World Cup
Again, Ronaldo only has one Club World Cup hat
trick to his name so far -- scored against Japanese
side Kashima Antlers in the 2016 final -- but it was
another decisive treble, as Madrid's Japanese
opponents took a shocking 2-1 lead just after half-
time before Ronaldo netted a penalty to send the
game to extra time, when he scored twice more.
FIFA World Cup
If you're going to score a hat trick for Portugal at a
World Cup, you may as well do it as part of an
incredibly dramatic 3-3 draw against Spain in 2018
-- and draw level with the great Ferenc Puskas for
the most international goals by a European player in
UEFA Nations League
Ronaldo has only made two appearances in the
Nations League and still managed to score a hat
trick, against Switzerland in the 2019 semifinals.
UEFA Champions League
Perhaps Ronaldo's most famous hat trick of all was
his classy one-man dismantling of Atletico Madrid
at the Bernabeu in the 2016-17 semifinals -- the
seventh Champions League hat trick of his career.
