Real Madrid 5-1 Athletic Bilbao: Cristiano Ronaldo Bags A Hat-Trick As Los Leones Are Humbled

Real Madrid reclaimed top spot in the Liga BBVA standings Saturday night as they picked up a hard-earned win against a spirited Athletic Bilbao at the Bernabeu.

Los Blancos stormed into the lead through Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half-an-hour and Fernando Llorente clawed one back for the visitors before the break. Los Leones fought valiantly, but ultimately fell victims to a well-taken penalty by Sergio Ramos, a free-kick and spot-kick from Ronaldo in the second half as Jose Mourinho's men bagged the three points.

The story is too old to be commented.
