Cristiano Ronaldo Scores Double in Al Nassr Win
On Tuesday, Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in Al Nassr’s win over Al Adalh, keeping his team in the competition for leadership in the Saudi Arabian League. The win was by 0-5, and Al Ittihad maintains its place as the leader of the competition.
During the game played at the Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi stadium in Al Hasa, Ronaldo converted a penalty just before half-time, opening the scoring for his team. Brazilian Anderson Talisca, the competition’s top scorer, scored the second goal and assisted Ronaldo in scoring the third.
The rout of Rudi Garcia’s team was extended in the 78th minute by Talisca, and Ayman Yahya completed the win in added time.
Ronaldo’s Impressive Record in the Saudi Arabian League
Since Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in the Arab league, he has accumulated eleven goals and two assists in the nine games he has played in this competition. This is just five fewer than his teammate Anderson Talisca, who has sixteen.
Ronaldo, the top scorer in football history, signed the second goal by beating his marker and the opposing goalkeeper with his left foot.
The Competition for Leadership
Despite the win, Al Nassr is still one point behind the leader Al Ittihad, coached by the Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo. Al Ittihad beat Damac by 3-0 on the twenty-second day of the competition, with goals from Bruno Henrique, Romarinho (from a penalty), and Ahmed Hegazy.
The competition for leadership in the Saudi Arabian League remains intense, with both Al Nassr and Al Ittihad vying for the top spot.
