Ronaldo grabbed a hat-trick in a 6-1 demolition of Galatasaray on the opening night and needed little persuading to add two more goals to his tally at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He gave the Primera Division club an early lead with a firm header but, after he doubled the advantage from a spellbinding Di Maria cross midway through the second half, his Argentinian team-mate arguably stole the show with a classy brace of his own to settle the tie.
Real coach Carlo Ancelotti said: "It was a good match, the start of the match was good, with intensity and a good balance. Our play was slower after the goal, but in the second half we played with intensity and tried to score until the end. The attitude was good. We changed the attitude and that was good."
