Cristiano Ronaldo scores hat trick to end year with personal-best 61 goals

Cristiano Ronaldo's 61 goals in all competitions is the most he has scored in a single season.

Cristiano Ronaldo set a personal record for goals in a season by scoring a hat trick in the first half of Real Madrid's season finale on Saturday.

The three goals in Real's 7-3 win against Getafe brought his season tally to 61 in all competitions, one better than the 60 he scored in 2012.

Ronaldo finished with 48 goals in La Liga -- the most in his six seasons with Real Madrid -- eclipsing rival Lionel Messi of Barcelona by five. Ronaldo finished two goals shy of Messi's La Liga record of 50 in a season, set in 2012.

The Ballon d'Or winner added another 10 goals in the Champions League, two in the UEFA Super Cup in August, and one in the Copa del Rey, for 61 goals in 54 games, a rate of about 1.13 goals per match.

Ronaldo and Messi are joint top scorers in the Champions League, though Messi could surpass him by scoring in the final against Juventus.

Ronaldo's season came to an end in the 58th minute on Saturday when he was replaced by Martin Odegaard, who at 16 years, five months and six days old became the youngest player to debut for Real Madrid.

Saturday's hat trick, Ronaldo's eighth in La Liga this season, extended his career league record to 27.

Ronaldo also claimed a one-goal edge over Messi for the most league goals in the past five seasons -- 199 to 198. The next player on that list in Europe's top five leagues is Zlatan Ibrahimovic with 117.
