The 30-year-old has now become the first Real player to score four goals in a Champions League match.

Forward Karim Benzema also contributed three goals for Real in the 13th, 24th and 73rd minute while midfielder Mateo Kovacic also netted a goal in the 70th minute of the match.

Expressing views on his team's performance, coach Rafael Benítez said that it was a strange match and insisted that Real could have scored more goals, the Guardian reported.

With the win, Real have finished top in Group A ahead of Paris St Germain, who had already qualified following their 2-0 win against Shakhtar.
