It was all about Rodrygo as the Brazilian scored a hattrick in Real Madrid’s 6-0 thumping of Galatasaray.

Real Madrid got off to a flying start against Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeau.

Teenage sensation Rodrygo bagged the fastest brace in UEFA Champions League history.

He scored his first in the fourth minute, and his second only three minutes later in the seventh.

The 18-year-old was brought in this summer for 45 million Euros, from Santos, but was earmarked as one for the future.

Someone should have let the teenager in on the plan.

He has forced his way into Zinedine Zidane’s plans this season, having now scored five goals in eight games.

Ramos then converted a penalty, after VAR judged that Toni Kroos had been fouled in the box.

14 minutes gone, Real Madrid 3 – 0 Galatasaray.

Los Blanco’s sheer domination continued, although the Turkish side was able to keep them at bay for another 30 minutes.

But right on the stroke of half time, Frenchman Karim Benzema got in on the action to make four to nil at the break.

The second half was much the same story.

The statistics from ESPN showed total Spanish domination. 70 percent possession and 11 shots on target compared to Galatasaray’s one.

Real were prevented in adding to there score until the 81st minute, when old guard Benzema got his brace, to show that anything the young Rodrygo can do I can too.

The only problem was that Rodrygo wasn’t done. In the second minute of injury time, he got his hattrick and Real sixth.

Final score: Real Madrid 6 – 0 Galatasaray.

It will take a few more scores like this to relieve some of the pressure on Zinedine Zidane.
