Ronaldo treble torments Ajax

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo notched his second hat-trick of the week as Real Madrid edged a step closer to the Champions League knockout stages with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Ajax in Amsterdam.

Ronaldo, who also struck three in Sunday's 5-1 Primera Division win over Deportivo La Coruna, netted in the 42nd, 79th and 81st minutes with Karim Benzema getting Madrid's other goal (48).

Ajax's goal came from Niklas Moisander in the 56th minute but they could not get any closer as Jose Mourinho's side now boast two wins from two in Group D and have opened up a two-point lead at the top.
