However, the South American will have to turn his immediate focus to his club side as PSG take on Toulouse in a Ligue 1 match on Saturday before visiting the Spanish capital to take on Real Madrid in a mammoth UEFA Champions League round-of-16 clash. Jon Bautista and Asier Illaramendi netted consolation goals for Real Sociedad.

- Ronaldo has scored in each of his seven league games against Real Sociedad at Santiago Bernabeu (15 goals in total).

Real Madrid's former prodigy Ronaldo, is of firm belief that the Bernabeu are in need of PSG's record signing Neymar.

"I know who will play on Wednesday", the manager told reporters at a press conference.

Real became the first team to successfully defend the Champions League last season, both successes coming in Zidane's two years in charge.

Bayern and Juventus are unlikely to pay the kind of fee Madrid would like to get for him, while Arsenal are likely to miss out on the Champions League and so would not appeal to the player.

Ronaldo and Karim Benzema also hit the woodwork in a first half completely dictated by Madrid, which used its pressure to perfection.

The hat-trick is Ronaldo's 33rd in LaLiga.

Paris St Germain was made to wait as Neymar struck in the second half to earn a 1-0 win at Toulouse Saturday that extended the Ligue 1 leader's advantage to 12 points.

Griezmann dedicated the goal to Nacho Barbera, an Atletico fan and teenage player who died from a heart attack last weekend during a game in eastern Spain.

"We're just focused on this game".

But Tavares got his second from the penalty spot to equalise for Olivier Dall'Oglio's side before Kwon Chang-Hoon scored the victor six minutes from time to earn back-to-back wins for just the second time this season.
