Cristiano Ronaldo is back in action for Al Nassr and scored in their 3-1 win against Al Wehda in the Saudi Pro League, showing no signs of rust.
After coming up short in the title race last season, Ronaldo is determined to lead his team to victory this time, especially with new famous faces joining the league.
Restored to the team after being rested in the previous game, Ronaldo showed top form and threatened the opposition’s goal multiple times.
Ronaldo also set up his teammate Alex Telles for a goal from free-kick range.
Despite missing a few chances, Ronaldo finally found the back of the net when an Al-Wehda defender’s mistake left an opportunity for Ronaldo to score easily.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been directly involved in 20 goals in just 12 Saudi Pro League games this season, scoring his 13th goal in the latest match.
With this goal, Ronaldo is now three goals clear in the race for the Saudi Pro League’s Golden Boot.
