It is the first time that Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale and Bezema have all scored before the 15th minute.
A record. That is the only way to describe what Real Madrid did in the first few minutes against Sporting. The Whites only needed 12 minutes to score their first three goals, courtesy of the BBC. They had not achieved that so quickly since 15 January 1956 when they beat Celta 8-3. Di Stéfano (4th min), Castaño (9th) and Rial (10th) got the goals that day.

It is also the first time that all of the BBC members have scored within the first 15 minutes. The three goals were different and all very well executed. Bale scored with a header in the 7th minute, Cristiano Ronaldo hit in a powerful left-footed shot from the edge of the area two minutes later, and Benzema scored a spectacular shot in the 12th minute.
