Aston Villa 3-3 QPR: Benteke nets hat-trick in thrilling relegation showdown

Christian Benteke scored a hat-trick to earn Aston Villa a crucial point in a thrilling 3-3 draw with fellow Premier League strugglers QPR on Tuesday.

The in-form Belgian, who has now scored seven goals in his last five top-flight outings, netted a brilliant free-kick seven minutes from time to complete his treble and deny Chris Ramsey's QPR a win that would have moved them above Villa into 17th place.
