Cristiano Ronaldo continued his run of superb form netting four goals in a 5-1 thrashing of Elche. His four goal performance follows up his weekend hat-trick against Deportivo, a match which Madrid won handily 8-2.

With seven goals in his past two games, Ronaldo now leads La Liga in scoring with nine goals total. While Ronaldo is firing on all cylinders, so are his teammates. Real Madrid has outscored its opposition 18-4 in their last three games.

Ronaldo now has 25 hat-tricks in just over five seasons with Real Madrid. With an average of just under five hat-tricks per season, we are witnessing greatness.

Take a look below at all four of his goals against Elche, including two from the penalty spot.

After a possible dive from Marcelo, Ronaldo buries the penalty to put Real up 2-1.
