Ronaldo: Real not in the final yet

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo insists their job isn't done yet, despite scoring a hat-trick against Atletico on Tuesday night.

Los Merengues dominated their visitors to claim a 3-0 victory in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final, thanks to three strikes from Ronaldo.

The 32-year-old scored in the 10th, 73rd, and 86th minutes to put Real in charge heading into the second leg, while also becoming the first player to score a hat-trick in consecutive Champions League knockout games.

However, Ronaldo urged his teammates to remain focused for the second leg because the victory was not secured just yet.

"It was a total game from the team, we played phenomenally well," he told the press, according to ESPN FC. 

"We have a good advantage, but it is not over yet. Atletico are very strong, they are not in the semi-finals by chance, and we must keep our concentration next Wednesday."
