An incredible start to the season for Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has started the season in electric form. The forward has been involved in 15 goal contributions in only eight games in the SPL. Al-Nassr is the joint highest-scoring side along Neymar’s Al-Hilal in the league, with most of the goals coming from the number seven.
