There is no end to Al-Nassr’s suffering. After a poor performance in the league, they are also out of the cup, from which former Viktoria Plzen player Jean-David Beauguel eliminated them with his goal.
The footballers around Cristiano Ronaldo are not in an easy situation. They have lost their lead in the league over the last few weeks and now they have to swallow the end in the cup.
Today’s game is the third in a row that Al-Nassr has failed to win. A goalless draw, which was followed by the dismissal of coach Rudi García, was followed by a 0-2 loss at Al-Hilal.
This defeat meant consolidating the gap to leaders Al-Itihad, who can go six points clear with six rounds to go in the league if they win their game. Thus, Al-Nassr needed to make amends in their cup match against Al Wehda.
They are at the bottom of the league table with a four-point lead on the first relegation position. For Czech fans, this club may be interesting because of the fact that a former Plzeň player is wearing their jersey.
It was Jean-David Beauguel who scored the only goal of the match to decide his team’s progress to the final.
Al-Nassr clearly dominated the second half, which was almost entirely played with a numerical advantage. However, they were unable to convert their huge percentage of ball possession into a much needed goal.
Cristiano Ronaldo was also frustrated, of course, as he came up empty today. He expressed his displeasure after the end of the first half, gesticulating very loudly towards his bench.
Al Wehda therefore celebrates a very unexpected scalp and a qualification to the cup final, where they will face Al-Hilal.
