Cristiano Ronaldo was on target with a stunning goal as Al-Nassr defeat Al-Shabab in Saudi Pro League, MySportDab reports.
The former Manchester United forward and five times Ballon d’Or winner hit a stunning winner to complete a dramatic comeback win for Al-Nassr against Al-Shabab.
Al-Nassr nearly suffer a shock home defeat against the visitors as the latter raced into a 2-0 lead before the 40th minute.
With the Saudi Pro League rounding off soon, Al-Nassr needed a win to keep the hopes of possibly winning the title alive.
A defeat against A-Shabab would have seen Al-Ittihad crowned Saudi Pro League champions after the latter secured a win over Al-Batin in early kick off.
Cristiano Ronaldo rose to the occasion once again for Al-Nassr as he scored a stunner to complete a comeback for the host to delay Al-Ittihad title celebrations.
Cristian Guanca scored from a spotkick in the 24th minute before bagging his brace in the 40th minute to put Al-Shabab ahead before Al-Nassr forward Talisca cut down the deficit, making it 2-1 before the first half break.
Al-Nassr leveled the scores in the second half in the 51st minute when Ghareeb scored for the hosts to make it 2-2.
At the cusp of the hour mark, Cristiano Ronaldo produced one of his usual magical moments to score the winner for the hosts.
He paced and dribbled pass two Al-Shabab defenders and curled a powerful strike into the top corner to make it 3-2 for the home side.
It was Cristiano Ronaldo’s 14th goal for Al-Nassr since joining the club after the 2022 World Cup.
Despite the win, their rivals Al-Ittihad are more likely to clinch the Saudi Pro League trophy with a commanding lead on the table with Cristiano Ronaldo more likely to end his debut season in Saudi Pro League without a trophy.
