The Portuguese striker scored three in Saturday's clash with Celta and has now scored the most hat-tricks in the history of La Liga
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 200th goal on Saturday when he scored three in Real Madrid's victory over Celta, making him the player with the most hat-tricks in the history of the Spanish league.

Having racked up 197 goals in 177 league games heading into the clash at the Santiago Bernabeu, the Portuguese attacker opened the scoring with a penalty in the first half before adding a further two in the second period to reach the milestone.

Not only did he reach a remarkable goal tally, he also broke a record with his 23rd hat-trick in the Spanish top flight. 

Shortly after making history with the 200th strike, the attacker was substituted and walked off to a huge round of applause from the home crowd.

The 2013 Ballon d'Or winner is now on 23 league goals in just 13 games this campaign.
