Ronaldo all about the team
Ronaldo was the star of the show as he followed up his seven hat-tricks last term with yet another treble for Real after netting in the 24th, 71st and 87th minutes, but the £80million man preferred to laud his team rather than take individual credit for the victory.
He said on his club's website: "First of all you need to congratulate the team, who played well, and I scored my goals thanks to them. They help me and I help them, that's how it is.
"We won't win anything if we aren't together. The team is what is important. I will try to help with goals, but the collective effort is the main thing."
Marcelo, Xabi Alonso and Kaka were also on the scoresheet as Real sent out an ominous warning to three-time reigning La Liga champions Barcelona and the rest of the division.
Ronaldo, who won the European Golden Shoe last season after netting 40 times in La Liga, added: "We had the best possible start to the campaign and we shouldn't focus on what others do. We must concentrate on winning all our games and think solely of ourselves."
