Agency, 7 November : Real Madrid struck six against Galatasaray as Juventus, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain all booked their place in the Champions League knockout stages.
Real Madrid went into the game against Galatasaray with just four points from their opening three Group A games but Brazilian wonderkid Rodrygo netted twice in the opening seven minutes to put Los Blancos in control before Sergio Ramos converted a penalty.
Karim Benzema added a fourth just before half-time and became only the second player after Lionel Messi to score in 15 consecutive Champions League campaigns. The French striker then struck his 50th goal in the competition and teed up Rodrygo to complete his hat-trick.
The victory leaves Madrid in a strong position to qualify from the group but they are likely to finish runners-up to PSG who defeated Club Brugge 1-0 at the Parc des Princes.
