Real Madrid 5-0 Sevilla — Demolition job

The ever-bashful Real Madrid forward has concluded that he is simply the best after he drew level with Lionel Messi having received his fifth Ballon d'Or award on Thursday.

The 32-year-old notched hat-tricks against Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid in the quarter and semi-finals and a double in the 4-1 win over Juventus in the final, contributing to his club-record tally of 416 goals, and he also played a key part in his team's La Liga triumph under boss Zinedine Zidane.

And the 85,000 crowd at the Bernabeu serenaded the Portuguese with chants of "Cristiano, Ballon d'Or" as he posed for photos with all five of his golden ball trophies.

Cristiano Ronaldo, scored twice at the Bernabeu, while Toni Kroos, Achraf Hakimi and Nacho Fernandez also found the back of the net in the rout. "The idea is that he travels with us to the Club World Cup and we will see if he can be with us in the first game".

"I'm the best player in history - in the good and the bad moments".

Yet, a first five-goal haul in La Liga season in undoubtedly Madrid's best performance since they swept aside Barca in the Spanish Super Cup in August was more than enough to set up the Catalans' return visit on December 23 nicely.

"I haven't seen Maradona or Pele play".

It could have been worse for the visitors when, during a low-key second half, Karim Benzema saw his header hit the woodwork.

"I was clearly better". Ronaldo held up a hand with fingers spread to indicate his quintet of Ballon d'Ors, as he matched Messi and extended their era of domination to 10 years.

Luka Modric forced Rico into action, and Ronaldo tried his luck with an acrobatic effort before Kroos added the night's fourth goal, an easy finish in the 38th minute after a good cross from Vazquez. Football comes in cycles.

"I didn't think I'd be able to catch Messi, because after I won my first, he won four, and I thought it would be difficult to equal him", Ronaldo said. "Today is the fifth, and that pushes me more to keep fighting, without thinking of my age".
