Los Blancos headed into the match trailing 2-1, but they needed only 90 seconds to eradicate the deficit and in spectacular fashion.

Ronaldo cut in from the left and unleashed a stunning piledriver which was still swerving away from Celta goalkeeper Sergio Álvarez as it nestled into the far corner from 25 yards out.

The Portuguese, who finished second to Lionel Messi for the second successive year in the FIFA Ballon d'Or award, made it two in the 23rd minute before completing his hat-trick three minutes from the end.

Sami Khedira rounded off the scoring on the stroke of injury time to finally seal the home side's passage into the next round.
