Barcelona: Cristiano Ronaldo netted another hat trick to extend his scoring streak to eight consecutive games and lead Real Madrid to a 5-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish league on Sunday.

It was Ronaldo's second treble to go with one four-goal game already this season and gave the Ballon d'Or holder a league-leading 13 goals in six appearances, more than the entire team goal totals of 16 of the league's 20 sides. It was also his 22nd hat trick in the Spanish league, equaling the record held by Alfredo Di Stefano and Telmo Zarra.

Karim Benzema added two goals as Madrid's speedy forwards picked apart a Bilbao side that proved brittle at the back and is now winless in its last seven games.
