Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol hailed Cristiano Ronaldo after his hat-trick against Sevilla.

Real warmed up for Champions League opponents Manchester United with a thumping win over Sevilla.

Albiol said of Ronaldo: "He is spoiling us, scoring so many goals and playing such great games. We expect him to do so every day. He netted three times against Seville and we hope he can do it again on Wednesday. The superb goal he scored is something only a player with his class can pull off."
