Cristiano Ronaldo continues to break all kinds of records as the Real Madrid star scored an 11-minute hat trick on Tuesday against Malmo in the UEFA Champions League.

The four goals on Tuesday takes Ronaldo to 11 goals in six UCL games so far this season, which is a record number of goals scored by a single player during the group stage.
Fun fact: all of Ronaldo’s UCL goals have come against Malmo and Shakhtar Donetsk. On Tuesday Real already had top spot in Group A sewn up but turned on the style against their Swedish opponents as they won 8-0 with Karim Benzema grabbing a hat trick.
