Cristiano Ronaldo steers Al-Nassr to victory against Al-Tai to keep title dreams alive

In their match corresponding to the 27th match of the Saudi Professional League, a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo earned Al-Nassr a 2-0 win against Al-Tai. The Portuguese scored the first goal of the victory for his team, which still remains as Al-Ittihad’s escort.

On the minute of the game, the team led by Dinko Jelić already posed a threat with an overflow from the right and a subsequent pass through the middle that facilitated a shot from Andersen Taliska. The Brazilian’s shot went wide of the left post.

Just before a quarter of an hour, Yadav warned again with a shot from Abdulrahman Gharib after a good approach on the left, but it went over the crossbar and into the left corner.

Al Tai had no reply and after half an hour Cristiano had the clearest chance of the first half. After a long ball from the back was denied by the defence, the Portuguese fired a powerful shot from the crescent of the area and Víctor Braga avoided the target with a fine shot at the left post.

Finally, at the start of the supplement, the Voyageurs were able to reach both via penalties. Abdulmajid Al Sulayhim had anticipated Mohamed Harjan while having control of the ball and in his effort to avoid damage, had a strong stomp on the wheel.

After a VAR review, the referee awarded the maximum penalty and Ronaldo converted for a low definition goal which was next to the left post of the goal defended by Víctor Braga to break the zero.

The match continued in the same way until the locals were able to pose a threat in the opponent’s area and Agustín Rossi had almost no work in the match.

However, the second goal came with just under ten minutes to go in regulation time. Andersson Talisca had good pressure before the opponent was released and, after taking the ball from one of the central defenders, he deflected near the right post before the goalkeeper sealed the win.

Thus, Al-Nasr reached 60 points and with three rounds (9 points at stake), they were three points behind leaders Al-Ittihad, who also equalized in their respective match against Al-Hilal.
