VIDEO: 18 Years Old Rodrygo Makes Champions League History With Hat-trick in Real Madrid Routing of Galatasaray
Rodrygo scored a sensational hat-trick and the fastest two goals in Champions League history on Wednesday as Real Madrid humiliated Galatasaray 6-0.
The Brazilian, 18, opened the scoring at Santiago Bernabeu just four minutes into Madrid’s Group A clash to mark his first-ever goal in the competition.
He got his second three minutes later as he headed in superbly from another Marcelo cross, becoming the first player to score twice in the first seven minutes of a Champions League game.
In the second minute of stoppage-time, Rodrygo converted Karim Benzema’s pass to complete a perfect hat-trick by scoring a treble using his right foot, left foot and head.
He became the second youngest player to score a Champions League treble, behind only Real legend Raul.
Madrid’s emphatic victory means they are virtually qualified from Group A, sitting five points ahead of Club Brugge, even if Paris Saint-Germain who are top look certain to claim first place.
