Welcoming opponents in the second half of the rankings is a good opportunity for Al Nassr to quench his thirst for victory. With great determination, Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates rushed to attack after the opening whistle and only needed 4 minutes to knock down the visitors’ defense.
Al Ghannam took advantage of defender Al Raed’s error to break the ball to hang the ball just enough for Ronaldo to head high, opening the score.
The early goal helped Al Nassr comfortably deploy the game. Ronaldo moves wide to suck defenders and make walls. The former Juventus star had one more shot and one pass to create a chance but Al Nassr could not score more before half-time.
At the beginning of the second half, the home club KSU continued to attack. In the 55th minute, Ronaldo made a mark with a brave air battle. Ayman Yahya received the ball and provided an assist for Abdulrahman Ghareeb to double the lead for the home team.
For the rest of the game, Ronaldo was put quite a lot of the ball. In the 74th minute, CR7 had a good chance to score a double. However, he missed the post from close range.
The fact that Al Raed’s defense spent a lot of attention on Ronaldo accidentally opened the space for Mohammed Maran and Al Sulaiheem to score 4-0.
Ronaldo and his teammates continued to chase Al Ittihad in the championship race. The capital club Riyadh is 3 points behind the rival and plays more in one game, while the season has 5 more rounds to end.
