Cristiano Ronaldo's three-goal performance helped Real Madrid extend its home unbeaten streak. Watch Highlights Now.
A week after the first own goal of his La Liga career led to a Real Madrid defeat, Cristiano Ronaldo regained his scoring touch with a three-goal performance in a 4-1 victory over Sevilla Saturday, upping the club's home undefeated streak to 33 games.
Ronaldo's cross set up the first goal, a Karim Benzema tap-in in the 18th minute. Ronaldo slammed in a 25-yard left-footer in the 26th minute for a two-goal halftime advantage, then scored in the opening minute of the second half. Ronaldo started and concluded a counterattack, tapping in a centering pass from Kaka, for a 4-0 advantage in the 59th minute. Manu Del Moral converted for Sevilla in the 87th minute.
Ronaldo then was replaced by Alvaro Morata in the 63rd minute as Real Madrid prepared for Wednesday's match against Manchester United in the Champions League.
Portuguese defender Pepe recovered from injury, returning to action as a second-half substitite in midfield.
Real Madrid increased its home unbeaten streak to 33 games (27-0-6) since a Jan. 18, 2012 loss to Barcelona (2-1) in a Copa del Rey match. Real (46 points) is in third place, trailing Barcelona by 13 points.
