Ronaldo Hat-trick As Real Madrid Humble Atletico

Real Madrid enjoyed one of the easiest Madrid derby in its history, all thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick that humbled rivals, Atletico Madrid in the late La Liga fixture.
The 3-0 victory however,is Madrid’s first success over Atletico Madrid in the Spanish top flight in three years.
Real now lead second-placed Barcelona by four points after the Catalans paid a heavy price for the absence of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in a 0-0 draw with nine-man Malaga earlier on Saturday.
A third league defeat in four games leaves Atletico’s title ambitions in tatters in their final season at the Calderon.  Diego Simeone’s men are now nine points adrift of Real down in fifth.
Ronaldo struck the decisive spot-kick as Real edged Atletico on penalties in the Champions League final in May and was the match winner once more, albeit with a slight hint of fortune. Ronaldos opener took a wicked deflection on its way past the excellent Jan Oblak. He then doubled Real’s lead from the penalty spot 19 minutes from time before a brilliant Gareth Bale cross teed him up for the simplest of finishes to complete his hat-trick.
Real were without six key players in captain Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Alvaro Morata and Karim Benzema, but impressively controlled the first 45 minutes.
