Cristiano Ronaldo became the fastest player to reach 100 goals in the Spanish league by scoring two to help leaders Real Madrid rebound from consecutive draws with a rout of Real Sociedad.

Gonzalo Higuaín scored before both Ronaldo and Karim Benzema hit doubles as Real Madrid showed no signs of missing the guiding hand of coach José Mourinho, who was suspended after being sent to the stands during Real’s last game, a 1-1 draw with Villarreal. Xabi Prieto scored for Real Sociedad just before half-time to bring the score back to 3-1.

Madrid stayed six points clear at the top of the table after 10-man Barcelona’s 2-0 victory at Mallorca, where Lionel Messi netted his 55th goal of the season in all competitions.

Madrid great Ferenc Puskas formerly held the record for the fastest player to reach 100 goals after doing so in 105 matches in the 1960s. Ronaldo needed 92 games to score 101.
