MADRID (REUTERS) - Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick and passed the landmark of 300 club goals as Real Madrid won 4-0 at home to Getafe in the Spanish Primera Liga on Sunday.

Real struggled to break through a determined Getafe defence in the first half but once Sergio Ramos had scrambled the ball into the net at a corner eight minutes after the break, the home side turned the screw and Ronaldo struck three times in 10 minutes, the first his 300th club goal.

The Portuguese, who was substituted with around 15 minutes left after a knock to his right ankle, scored five for Sporting, 118 for Manchester United and now has 179 for Real thanks to his 20th career treble.
