It has been a long time coming by Cristiano Ronaldo's standards, but he finally claimed his first hat-trick in Italian football as he scored three in Juventus' comfortable 4-0 win over Cagliari.

He was at his devastating best on Monday, taking advantage of an awful pass from the defender to pounce on possession on the edge of the box before rounding the keeper to smash home.

The second was much more simple as he confidently dispatched a penalty into the bottom right corner..

To earn his hat-trick, he received a pass to feet to the left of the box from Douglas Costa before taking one touch to set himself up before lashing a left-footed strike into the bottom left corner.

It wasn't just goalscoring that he contributed, however, as he also battled away to win 7/9 duels, as well as making two ball recoveries.
