Cristiano Ronaldo’s thirty-nineth career hat-trick gave Real Madrid a derby win over city rivals Atletico to increase the club’s lead at the top of La Liga.

The Portugal forward opened the scoring with a deflected free-kick that wrong-footed Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Ronaldo added a second from the penalty spot before he completed his treble when he tapped in Gareth Bale’s cross.

Real Madrid now have a four-point lead over second-placed Barcelona, who were held to a goalless draw by Malaga earlier.

Ronaldo has scored eight La Liga goals for the European champions this season, to draw level with Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

The player’s treble also saw him go one goal of clear of legendary Real forward Alfredo Di Stefano’s individual total of 17 goals in the Madrid derby.
