The Portuguese star's hat-trick against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday evening in the Champions League semi-final first leg saw Real Madrid go 3-0 up on aggregate.
Real were dominant throughout the game against their city rivals at the Bernabeu and led after just 10 minutes when Ronaldo headed home Casemiro's cross. It was his easiest goal of the night, he controlled Lucas Vazquez's cross, then fired home.
Although we're sure it won't take long for him to reach that 400 landmark.
Cristiano Ronaldo was adjudged player of the match.
"There is still the return leg to play and until the referee blows the final whistle anything can happen", said the Real Madrid boss, who nevertheless knows that an away goal would leave Atletico needing 5 goals to qualify.
The 32-year-old lauded his team-mates for a performance which has them in control of the tie heading into next week's second leg.
Pepe was given the goal officially, whereas Real cheekily awarded it to Ronaldo - but that's not how it works unfortunately. "He knows that the games mount up over the season and over the years and that he has to rest from time to time, but I don't think that is the only reason".
Neymar Facing Prison Sentence?
The transfer figure originally published by Barcelona was €57.1m (£48.4m) with €40m euros (£33.9m) of that given to his family. Barca have won back-to-back Spanish league and Cup doubles with the trio and won the Champions League in 2015.
"I am happy to have scored my 400th goal for Real Madrid", Ronaldo added, although official statistics have him on 399.
The team has been tremendous.
It was his second treble in as many European games after Real's contentious quarterfinal win over Bayern Munich, and puts his side firmly on course for the final in Cardiff on June 3. However, we haven't won anything yet and we need to be just as on it as we always are.
Benzema held the ball up from Diego Godin at the edge of the Atletico penalty area before laying it off towards Ronaldo.
"Atletico Madrid are a great team and they're in the semi-finals for a reason". These things can happen.
Zidane however, warned the Real Madrid players not to go overboard with their celebrations and retain their focus till the very end of their campaign. We will play until the last drop of possibility we have. "We will try for something impossible, as we are Atletico Madrid, we are capable of doing it".
