Real Madrid's Mariano Diaz hails "dream" hat-trick

Mariano Diaz says that it was "a dream" to net a hat-trick for Real Madrid in Wednesday's Copa del Rey clash with Cultural Leonesa.

Mariano Diaz has revealed his delight after netting a hat-trick in Real Madrid's 6-1 win over Cultural Leonesa in the second leg of their Copa del Rey last-32 clash on Wednesday night.

The Dominican forward, who made his La Liga debut earlier this season, struck a treble at the Bernabeu as Los Blancos breezed into the round of 16 courtesy of a 13-2 aggregate success.

Mariano has claimed that he would have been happy just to score once for the first team, but was delighted to net a treble in front of Zinedine Zidane.

"It's a dream. Scoring one goal is incredible, but a hat trick is unreal. I haven't had the chance to even stop and think about how I am feeling, just an amazing feeling of happiness," Mariano told beIN Sports.

"We tried to go out there and just play our game. We ended up scored a lot of goals and we are all very happy. I haven't set any objectives; I'll continue working hard every day in training and try to make the most of the opportunities I get."

Zidane's eldest son Enzo Zidane was also among the scorers on Wednesday night ahead of Real Madrid's trip to Barcelona in the league on Saturday afternoon.
