Real Madrid thrash Rayo Vallecano 6-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick.

Real Madrid have made a return to winning ways with a 6-2 victory over Rayo Vallecano at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The visitors took a shock lead inside 13 seconds when Miguel Cuesta was first to Iker Casillas' parry to hit home.

Jose Mourinho's side drew level on 38 minutes after Cristiano Ronaldo hit a low shot past Daniel Hernandez in the Vallecano goal.

Gonzalo Higuain made it 2-1 at the break when he was on hand to put Xabi Alonso's free kick into the net.

Five minutes after the restart, Ronaldo scored his second of the game from the penalty spot after Kaka had been fouled in the box.

Cuesta pulled a goal back for the away side from a corner on 66 minutes to make it 3-2, but Rafael Varane's right-footed finish from Mesut Ozil's corner opened up a two-goal lead once again.

The match was killed off on 72 minutes when substitute Karim Benzema hit a powerful shot from the edge of the area.

Madrid weren't finished, however, and Ronaldo claimed his hat-trick with five minutes to go when he scored his second penalty of the match after he was fouled by the travelling keeper.
