The Tottenham Hotspur’s and England striker , Harry Kane score a hat-trick in the Champions League in Tuesday’s encounter to secure a 3-0 win at APOEL Nicosia.

The 24-year-old follows the lead of Wayne Rooney, Alan Shearer and Michael Owen with his treble against APOEL Nicosia on Tuesday

Harry Kane notched his sixth hat-trick of the year, taking his tally to 11 goals for club and country in September — as Spurs backed up their opening victory over Dortmund with a comfortable win in Cyprus.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo a brace on his 400th Real Madrid appearance as the Champions League holders defeated Borussia Dortmund 3-1.

Elsewhere, Gareth Bale struck an exquisite volley as the record 12-time European champions secured an 18th-minute lead at Signal Iduna Park, with the Welshman supplying Ronaldo for Real’s second just after half-time.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang poked in Gonzalo Castro’s cross to give Dortmund hope, but Ronaldo rifled past Roman Burki to cement a second straight win for Real in Group H and leave the Germans still without a point.

Ronaldo, without a goal in his last two outings following his return from a five-match domestic ban, took his Real haul to 411 on what was also his 150th career appearance in Europe.

In another match, Kevin De Bruyne curled in a sublime 25-yard strike as Manchester City overcame spirited resistance from Shakhtar Donestk, with Raheem Sterling completing a 2-0 victory at Eastlands.

Pep Guardiola’s men top Group F after back-to-back wins to start the campaign, and the Premier League leaders could even afford a missed penalty from Sergio Aguero whose effort was turned away by Andriy Pyatov.

Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon hit the target as Napoli registered their first win by beating a hapless Feyenoord 3-1 in Italy.

Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw away to Spartak Moscow despite a sparkling strike from Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho linked up superbly with Sadio Mane to cancel out Fernando’s free-kick in the 31st minute, but Liverpool were unable to claim a winner as they recorded a second straight draw in Group E.

Wissam Ben Yedder fuelled Sevilla to a 3-0 victory over Maribor of Slovenia.

Porto stunned French champions Monaco with a 3-0 win in the principality in a repeat outcome of the 2004 final.

Vincent Aboubakar marked his return from suspension with goals in either half before Miguel Layun pounced on some slapstick defending in the closing moments as Porto bounced back from a home loss to Besiktas.

The Turkish champions top Group G with maximum points following a 2-0 success at home to newcomers RB Leipzig despite an 11-minute stoppage for floodlight failure in Istanbul.
