Cristiano Ronaldo and Co faced cross-town neighbours last night as the Portuguese star was on rampant form bagging a hat-trick en route to a 3-nil victory as well as creating more history with the Los Blancos in the process.

The 31-year-old pipped the great Alfredo Di Stefano in scoring the most goals against Atletico Madrid. Ronaldo bagged his 17th, 18th and 19th goals a landmark bettered by none in their rich history.

What's more, the three-time Ballon d'Or winner is also in sole possession of several other Real records including the clubs all-time scorer, but there are a host of significant other records Ronaldo will have on his cross-hairs on:
