The five-time Ballon d'Or winner struck four goals in the space of 60 minutes and entered the list of top 10 goal scorers in the Saudi Pro League after playing just three matches in the league this season. Additionally, Cristiano also crossed the 500 league goals mark with his first goal against Al-Wehda.

On April 16, 2022, Cristiano scored a brilliant hattrick against Norwich to help Manchester United win the game 3-2 and the next day he took to his official Twitter handle to post an unbelievable statistic. He wrote, "30 hat-tricks before 30 and 30 hat-tricks after 30. It’s time to unbalance the scale! 💪🏽"

After nine months, the 38-year-old Ronaldo scored another hattrick and lived up to the expectations by unbalancing the scale. Cristiano has scored 44 hat-tricks for Real Madrid, 10 for Portugal, three for Manchester United and Juventus, and one for Al-Nassr.

Take a look at Cristiano Ronaldo's four goals from Thursday's match:

This was the 11th time when Ronaldo scored four or more goals in a single match as the Portuguese has scored eight times for Real Madrid and twice for his country. Among his 503 league goals, Cristiano has scored 311 goals in the La Liga, 103 goals in the Premier League, 81 goals in the Serie A, five goals in the Saudi Pro League, and three goals in the Liga Portugal.
