Ronaldo scored the opening goal, helping Al Nassr beɑt Al Taee 2-0 in the 27th round of the Saudi Arabian league.
In the 52nd minute, when the score was 0-0, Al Sulaiheem broke into the penalty area and was stepped on by a player on Al Taee’s side. After consulting VAR, the referee awarded Al Nassr a penalty. From a distance of 11 meters, Cristiano Ronaldo kicked a cold kick into the far left corner. The home team’s goalkeeper guessed in the right direction but could not save.
Al Nassr took the lead after a deadlocked first half while Ronaldo scored his 13th goal in 14 appearances in the Saudi Arabian league this season. With the remaining 3 matches, CR7 is difficult to catch up with the top goalscorer in the current SPL, Abderrazak Hamdallah with 20 goals for Al Ittihad.
The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner has only scored 1 goal in the last 4 matches, leading to Al-Nassr’s unstable series of matches and gradually losing in the championship race with Al-Ittihad.
In addition to the situation of finishing the goal on the 11m mark, last night’s match also saw Ronaldo play relatively prominently, creating many stops to the opponent. If you’re lucky and Al Ta’ee’s goalkeeper Braga doesn’t play very well, the Portuguese star can improve his scoring record.
Ronaldo’s successful penalty kick helped Al Nassr completely control the game. In the 80th minute, Anderson Talisca took advantage of the mistake of the defense of the Prince Abdul Aziz bin Musa’ed yard to score a goal to increase the score to 2-0. Al Taee struggled to rise for the remaining minutes but failed to create a remarkable opportunity.
While Ronaldo and his teammates won 3 points, in the match at the same time, Al Ittihad was held 2-2 by Al Hilal in the final minutes of injury time of the second half. The chance to win the championship flashed again with Ronaldo and his teammates when they were only 3 points behind Al Ittihad while the season had 3 rounds left.
