Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t stop hitting the net in the Saudi Pro League with Al-Nassr, this time he scored twice again in the home game against Al-Alhy Jeddaq. Barely four minutes had passed when the Portuguese received a clearance from Sadio Mané and he crossed the goal to score the first goal.
But in the replay of the CR7 goal, one fact caught our attention. Given the importance of the game, Al-Nassr fans greeted their team with colored flares. In these cases, the referees decide to wait and start the game as soon as visibility returns to normal.
However, this time this did not happen and the game began with a lot of fog, a product of the smoke released by the pyrotechnics. A situation that Cristiano took advantage of to score the first goal given the poor visibility of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy’s goal.
And the party was not in vain, because the two clubs that clashed this Tuesday are great entertainers in the league and share the most striking squads in the Championship. The locals with Cristiano, Ánderson Talisca and Sadio Mané and the visit with Roberto Firmino, Ryan Mahrez and Franck Kessie. So the show was secured.
The second goal came when visibility normalized, with a goal from Brazilian Ánderson Talisca in the 14th minute. The visitors managed to equalize with Kessie in the 30th minute and Talisca extended the lead to 45+6.
Mahrez brought Al-Alhy closer by scoring a penalty in the 50th minute.
But Cristiano regained importance in the game after scoring the fourth goal in the 52nd minute. Firas Al.Braikan showed concrete numbers in the 87th minute in a game that ended 4-3 in favor of Al-Nassr. This victory puts the Riyadh team in fifth place in the championship with 15 units.
