Real Madrid forward Rodrygo Goes announced himself to the Champions League, scoring a hat-trick in his side’s 6-0 win over Galatasaray.

The 18-year-old scored twice in the opening stages at the Bernabeu to give the home side the lead, before capping off the win in injury time to become the second-youngest hat-trick scorer in Champions League history.

But the trio of goals weren’t enough on its own, with Rodrygo recording a perfect hat-trick, scoring with his left foot, head and right foot.

The Brazilian is the sixth player to score a hat-trick in the 2019/20 Champions League campaign, and has put Real Madrid back in control of their own destiny after a slow start to the group stage.

Rodrygo has also joined a long list of elite superstars to have scored a hat-trick in the Champions League since its inception in 1992.

There are 85 hat-trick scorers in total, with 19 players scoring more than one, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who have both managed eight.

We’ve given you three to start off with, but are you able to name all 85 players in the time limit? The Champions League has seen some obscure teams featured over the years, so there will be tough ones.
