Saturday's La Liga: Ronaldo Scores Hat-Trick As Real Madrid Rout Real Sociedad; Atletico Win

Real Sociedad provided little resistance for Zinedine Zidane's side as Real Madrid cruised to a 5-2 win in La Liga on Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Real Madrid thrashed Real Sociedad to warm up for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain.

Ronaldo set up Lucas Vazquez to head a first-minute opener, then blasted home from Marcelo's cross.

Toni Kroos added a third before Ronaldo headed in Luka Modric's corner.

Jon Bautista pulled one back after the break, but Ronaldo scored his third from close range before Asier Illarramendi's volleyed consolation.

Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid pulled to within six points of league leaders Barcelona behind Antoine Griezmann’s first-minute strike against Malaga.

The Frenchman found himself in on goal just 40 seconds into the match, after Saul Niguez had his attempt deflected at the top of the box.

Malaga remains in last place in La Liga on 13 points.
