Cristiano Ronaldo

Al Nassr came back from a 2-0 deficit to win with a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo in the second half, keeping their Saudi Pro League title aspirations alive.

Al Nassr 3-2 Al Shabab

After Luiz Gustavo was given a penalty for handball in the 24th minute, Cristian Guanca scored the game’s first goal from the penalty spot.

In the 40th minute, Guanca extended their lead; however, Talisca cut the score in half shortly before halftime.

Abdulrahman Ghareeb, a winger, equalized in the 51st minute by putting the ball in the back of the net while going unnoticed in the area.

In the 59th minute, Ronaldo gave his team a 3-2 lead after collecting the ball outside the box, avoiding two players, and unleashing a shot past the goalkeeper.

Ronaldo comeback

On Tuesday night, the top-of-the-table Al Ittihad defeated the bottom-dwelling Al Batin 1-0.

There are now only two games left in the season for each team, and Al-Nassr is three points behind their opponents despite having a same goal differential and more goals scored.

In at least one of their final two games, Al Nassr will be hoping the leaders falter.

While Ronaldo and his team will play 10th-place Ettifaq before also playing Al Fateh, they still have to play 12th-place Al Feiha and eighth-place Al-Ta’ee.
