Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo struck an amazing four goals in victory over Sevilla last night. Ronaldo scored four to go ahead of Barcelona star Lionel Messi in the Primera Division scoring charts as Real Madrid dismantled a woeful Sevilla side.

Madrid were 3-0 up by half-time through goals from Sergio Ramos, Ronaldo and Kaka, before Alvaro Negredo pulled one back in the 61st minute.

Ronaldo responded, netting again in the 65th, 70th and 75th minutes, with Negredo netting his second six minutes from time.

It was the sort of attacking flair Madrid failed to show against Barcelona as they crashed out of the Champions League in midweek, and ensured Barcelona will have to wait at least another week to seal the title.
