63 hat-tricks. Sixty. Three. That's how many football's greatest-ever goalscorer has on his record books already, and at the age of 39 and sitting as the Saudi Pro League's top marksman, Cristiano Ronaldo aims to get his 64th hat-trick and further his record as the man with most in history.
Up next for Ronaldo is is Al Feiha in the AFC Champions League after they fell further behind Al-Hilal in a Saudi Pro League defeat to keep them in second.
Cristiano Ronaldo betting tips – who is up next?
It did indeed take Ronaldo three matchdays to get his first goal, but he made up for lost time in those games with three finishes against Al Fateh to kick off his season with yet another hat-trick. It was yet another record-breaking hat-trick for Real Madrid's all-time top scorer, and he has since gone on to net 17 more goals in the Saudi Pro League off the back of scoring 14 times in 16 league appearances in his debut campaign.
Ronaldo has finally overtaken Aleksandar Mitrovic as the top scorer in the Saudi Pro League as a result of his 20 goals, although the former Fulham man has put together an impressive 17 goals in 17 games. Mitrovic and Al-Hilal are also ahead of Al-Nassr by seven points now, and the league title is likely heading away from Ronaldo, but, Al-Nassr will still meet with Al-Hilal in May, while Ronaldo and co. also have to juggle their AFC Champions League campaign alongside 11 more league games.
Memorable Cristiano Ronaldo hat-tricks
With 63 hat-tricks on his record books already, Ronaldo is way clear of everyone else in the history of football in this regard. Being at Real Madrid for the longest, he has a stunning tally of 44 hat-tricks with Los Blancos. The most memorable of these no doubt include a hat-trick at the Santiago Bernabeu over Wolfsburg in a Champions League comeback, while he also got one against Real's rivals Atletico Madrid in a 4-1 win in La Liga, and he did the same against Atletico four years later in the league and once again against them in the Champions League, not once, but twice, although the latter one was for Juventus.
Ronaldo also has some famous hat-tricks for Manchester United, with him even scoring three goals against Tottenham Hotspur in his last spell at the club, despite being out of form for periods of that move. The ex-United man also got three goals in a game against Norwich City in 2022, 12 years after his first hat-trick for the Red Devils.
He also has two hat-tricks already in the Saudi Pro League and has racked up 10 hat-tricks too for Portugal, although all of them have been in World Cup European qualifiers, besides a Nations League semi-finals hat-trick against Switzerland.
