Al-Nassr, boasting talents like Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane, have now chalked up two wins and two losses in their opening four matches.
Former Red Devils frontman Ronaldo was in scintillating form, converting two penalty kicks to help Al-Nassr cruise to a 4-0 victory over Al-Shabab. Interestingly, Ronaldo also had a goal disallowed during the game.
Not content with his own goal tally, Ronaldo passed the baton—or rather, the penalty kick—to Abdulrahman Ghareeb, who unfortunately squandered the opportunity.
Adding a dash of teamwork to his individual brilliance, the Portuguese sensation assisted Sadio Mane for another goal. He was also inches away from a personal hat-trick when he headed the ball against the post, only for Sultan Al-Ghannam to pounce on the rebound and score.
In another match, Al-Ahli’s former Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez, kicked off the scoring in a 2-0 triumph against Al-Tai. Al-Tai’s woes were compounded when Alfa Semedo received his marching orders in the 35th minute.
Mahrez didn’t stop at scoring; he also turned provider, setting up Franck Kessie for Al-Ahli’s second goal. With this win, Al-Ahli now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Al-Ittihad atop the league table, boasting a perfect four wins in as many matches.
