Following his patellar tendinitis problems that troubled him during the last few games of the 2013–14 season and at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Ronaldo scored twice in Los Blancos' first competitive game of the season (a 2–0 victory) against Sevilla in the 2014 UEFA Super Cup. With his two goals, Ronaldo tied second in the list of top scorers in European club competitions with 70 goals. After the opening game of the La Liga season, where he scored the second in a 2–0 home win against Córdoba, Carlo Ancelotti announced that Ronaldo would do "specific work to improve his condition."

On 28 August 2014, Ronaldo won the 2013–14 UEFA Best Player in Europe Award, after making the final three nominees in each of the four years that the accolade was held. He returned to action in a 2–1 defeat to Atlético Madrid on September 13, where he played on the right wing, notching up 10 crosses into the box, more than any other player on the pitch.

On 20 September, Ronaldo scored a hat-trick against Deportivo in an 8–2 away win, scoring his first goal at the Estadio Riazor. It was his 20th La Liga hat-trick, two away from Telmo Zarra and Alfredo Di Stéfano's all-time record of 22 hat-tricks. Ronalso also equalled Lionel Messi's record of hat-tricks away from home with seven hat-tricks. Three days later he scored four goals, including two penalties, in a 5–1 victory against Elche. This was his 25th hat-trick for Real Madrid in all competitions, 3 hat-tricks behind the record holder, Alfredo Di Stéfano. Having scored seven goals in 72 hours his coach Carlo Ancelotti stated: "The movements he makes are very quick and that's why they come as a surprise. He is always in just the right position because he has a unique gift for movement". With 186 goals in 169 La Liga matches, Ronaldo broke into the top ten scorers in La Liga.

On 5 October, he scored yet another hat-trick, this time against Athletic Bilbao in a 5–0 win. With two goals against Levante in a 5–0 win, Ronaldo set a record scoring start in a Spanish league season, increasing his league-leading tally to 15 goals in eight rounds despite missing one game due to injury.
