Cristiano Ronaldo rescued a losing match with a wonderful winning goal to keep his Al-Nassr in the title fight at the end of the competition. With two rounds to go, his team is still three points behind the league leaders and hoping to stumble .
Al-Nassr could already be out of the running for the league title
Cristiano Ronaldo has been going through a season full of woes and controversy, but in the end, things may not be as bad as they first appeared. The Portuguese star has come under fire from critics several times this season for his performances in Saudi Arabia.
As a result, fans took their emotions out on the club’s biggest star as their Al-Nassr fell far short of the goals stated when the star Portuguese joined the club.
But Al-Ittihad, the leader of the top Arab competition, has not been in scintillating form in recent weeks. With two losses in the last four games, he has given his pursuer a chance.
That is Cristiano Ronaldo’s team, who are riding a winning streak after crashing out of the cup semi-finals. This is also due to the improved performances of the 38-year-old cannonballer, who has already made 14 appearances for the Arab big club in 15 league games.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a beautiful goal to keep the title fight alive
Yesterday’s goal in particular is worth its weight in gold for Al-Nassr, as it meant a vital three points for the club from the capital Riyadh and kept them in the title carousel. However, victory at home was by no means easy.
The home team was still two goals down a few minutes before the change of sides. The home side reduced the deficit before going into the dressing rooms and even equalised shortly after the change of sides, but it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal that secured the win.
Ronaldo could have scored as early as half-time when he hit the crossbar of the away side after his typical leap. But it was not until half an hour before the end of normal time that the home side celebrated the winning goal.
The Portuguese star took the ball from Brazilian teammate Luiz Gustavo and unleashed an unstoppable shot from outside the box to split the net. The victory was all the more important as league leaders Al-Ittihad also won.
Al-Nassr is now three points behind the leaders with two rounds to go and still has a theoretical chance of winning the title. Will Ronaldo take his team to the coveted goal?
