Ligue 1: Confident PSG ready for Real Madrid - Emery

   PSG star Neymar is being eyed by Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first hat trick of the season four days before Real Madrid meets Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League with its season on the line.

Real Madrid returned to winning ways on Saturday, inflicting a 5-2 defeat on Real Sociedad, but that did not stop Madrid fans from booing Karim Benzema.

Benzema, who moved to the Spanish capital in 2009 from Lyon, is the fifth highest goal scorer in Real Madrid's history.

Real's big victory over Sociedad took them third above Valencia but they trail Barcelona by 16 points as they turn their attention to the defence of their Champions League title against PSG at the Bernabeu on Wednesday. "We'll be very motivated". "Of course, they're within their rights; they've paid so can have opinions, but I want fans to be with us for 90 minutes".

With Ronaldo leading the way, Madrid took the lead before a minute was up and led 4-0 by halftime.

The latter has played more games for Madrid under Zidane than anyone else and he opened the scoring after just 49 seconds, heading home a Ronaldo cross.

Ronaldo fired in a low cross from Marcelo, after Marco Asensio duped two defenders with a deft spin to play Marcelo clear down the left side.

'Justice for Colten' rallies planned across the country
Crown prosecutor Bill Burge said Stanley intentionally pulled the trigger and lied about the events that led to that moment. Ilian, a community activist, said the verdict wasn't a surprise as there were no Indigenous people on the jury.

Jon Bautista pulled one back after the break, but Ronaldo scored his third from close range before Asier Illarramendi's volleyed consolation.

Ronaldo's third goal exhibited his pure poacher's instinct, alert to fire home the rebound after Gareth Bale's shot was blocked by Geronimo Rulli.

"We're happy with him", Real manager Zinedine Zidane said of Ronaldo.

"I already know who will play on Thursday".

Atletico Madrid saw off Malaga 1-0 in a tight game to provisionally close the gap on leaders Barcelona to six points.

Antoine Griezmann struck the only goal of the game inside 40 seconds. Finally Ivan Ramis scored a 94th minute header to lift Eibar into sixth place with a 1-0 win away to Leganes.

Villarreal lost more ground in their quest for a top-four finish as they lost 2-1 at home to improving Alaves.
