Champions League: Galatasaray 1-6 Real Madrid – Ronaldo Hat-trick Guns Down Gala (Photos & Highlights)

Galatasaray 1-6 Real Madrid – Champions League – 17th September 2013

Turkey Soccer Champions League

Fresh from signing his new contract with Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo once again showed why is one of the greatest footballers to ever play the game, bagging a majestic hat-trick as Los Merengues strolled to a 6-1 win in Istanbul.

Despite having seasoned stars such as Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder in their ranks, Gala simply couldn’t live with their Spanish opponents. Ronaldo’s hat-trick came in the second-half, with his third a thing of dazzling, dribbling beauty while goals from Isco (a wonderful solo effort) and a brace from Karim Benzema capped off a fine display from the La Liga giants.

Gareth Bale came off the bench in the second period and had a hand in a couple of goals while Umut Bulut netted a consolation strike for the Turks. However, there was one negative for the Spaniards, with Iker Casillas, back in the starting line-up after a long time out of favour, having to go off early with a back injury.
