Saudi Arabia: Cristiano Ronaldo strikes Al Nassr ahead of Al-Shabab

Al Nassr, with the decisive goal by Cristiano Ronaldo, beat Al Shabab by 3-2 this Tuesday, while the leader of the Saudi Arabian championship, Al Ittihad, by Nuno Espírito Santo, beat Al Batin by 1-0 .

The team trained by the Portuguese could be crowned champions for the ninth time today, but they needed the triumph, which they achieved thanks to the solitary goal of the Brazilian striker Romarinho, scored in the ninth minute, and that Al Nassr was defeated in the penultimate and 28th round of the championship.

In this way, Al Ittihad maintains the isolated first place, with 66 points, against 63 of Al Nassr, in second place.

At MRSOOL Park, in Riyadh, third-placed Al Shabab were leading the game with two goals apart, thanks to the ‘double’ by Argentinian Cristian Guanca (24th and 40th minutes), but the goal by former Benfica Anderson Talisca (44), already close to the break, gave hope to Al Nassr.

Abdulrahman Ghareeb would restore equality, in the 51st minute, paving the way for Ronaldo to score the third and decisive goal, in the 59th minute, in what was his 14th league goal.
