Gameiro hits fastest La Liga hat-trick in 22 years

Kevin Gameiro's hat-trick for Atletico Madrid against Sporting Gijon was the fastest seen in La Liga since 1995.

Kevin Gameiro scored the fastest La Liga hat-trick in 22 years to help Atletico Madrid to a 4-1 win over Sporting Gijon on Saturday.

The 29-year-old came off the bench in the second half at El Molinon to win the match for Diego Simeone's side with a devastating showcase of finishing.

Gameiro struck three times in the space of just four minutes and 43 seconds in the closing stages - with his only three shots of the match - to secure the win for the visitors.

It was the quickest treble since Bebeto's against Albacete in 1995. The most recent hat-trick to come close was David Villa's for Valencia against Athletic Bilbao in 2006.
