Ronaldo & Bale combine to hammer Sevilla

Gareth Bale scored two on his Real Madrid home debut while Cristiano Ronaldo added a hat-trick as Sevilla were roundly beaten 7-3 at the Bernabeu on Wednesday evening.

Bale was criticised for his performance in last weekend's El Clasico, but responded within 13 minutes here.

A trademark left-footed curling strike into the top corner opened the scoring for Real Madrid, before the Welshman doubled his, and Madrid's, tally with a deflected free-kick on 27 minutes.

Ronaldo got his first from the penalty spot after Isco was brought down, but sloppy defending allowed Sevilla to score two in quick succession just before half-time.

But Madrid blew their opponents away in the second half. Bale set up Benzema for the fourth, then sped past Sevilla defender Moreno and squared for Ronaldo to bag his second and Madrid's fifth on 60 minutes.

Ivan Rakitic made it 5-3 three minutes later, but Madrid stepped on the gas again - Ronaldo notched his third via a deflection before Benzema added a seventh.
