The brace elevated Ronnie’s goal count with Al Nassr to 32 in just 37 games. However, the Los Blancos legend missed out on his hat trick, as the Al Okhdood defense thwarted his attempt to score in the final stages. On this note, Raghed Al Najjar, the Al Nassr goalkeeper, expects CR7 to secure a hat trick with an illustrious performance in the upcoming game.

The goalkeeper remarked after the match, “I expected Cristiano Ronaldo to score three goals, but he scored two goals. He will compensate us, God willing, in the next match.” It signifies the confidence in Ronaldo’s contribution to Al Nassr’s camp. Evidently, the Portuguese icon churned significant results for his Saudi side across all the fixtures.

Al Nassr secured an imposing 3-0 victory against the newly promoted Al Okhdood in the 14th SPL match. The standout moment was CR7’s two goals in the second half of this fixture. Ronaldo lofted the ball skilfully over the rival goalkeeper from over 35 yards in the 79th minute for the first goal. The United legend also found the net from a challenging angle in the penalty box, giving Al Nassr the lead in the match.
