Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Serie A hat-trick for Juventus to defeat Cagliari 4-0 on Monday.

The 34-year-old took advantage of Ragnar Klavan’s error in the early second half and scored the lead. Then he scored a penalty after Paulo Dybala was fouled by Marko Rog.

The Portuguese international also assisted Gonzalo Higuain to score the third goal for Juve before making it 4-0 when he slipped the ball under goalkeeper Robin Olsen in the 82nd minute.

This is Ronaldo’s first Serie A hat-trick since signing £99.2m move from Real Madrid in 2018 and his second hat-trick for Juve after scoring three goals against Atletico Madrid in last season’s Champions League last-16 tie. 

Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player since Alexis Sanchez to score a hat-trick in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.

Meanwhile, Juve is now first in Serie A with 45 pointshaving replaced Inter Milan who still have the chance to reclaim the position in the match against Napoli later today.
