Al Nassr managed to win 3-1 (they lost 1-0 at 90) against Al Baten, but the Portuguese failed to convert or assist any of his team’s goals.
Al-Nassr beat Al Baten 3-1 and reached the top of the first division of Saudi Arabian football. Cristiano Ronaldo, who was awarded the league’s best player of the month for February before the game, failed to score. On the other hand, the greatest peculiarity is that all the goals of the leader of the Saudi tournament were scored after 90 minutesthat is, in aggregate time.
Al Baten started early, taking the lead. Renzo López, former player of Central Córdoba from Santiago del Estero until a few months ago, he received a cross from Bukia, jumped higher than his mark and managed to score the first goal of the match with his head.
Several names, which in the past played in our football, are the ones that could be recognized. Martín Campaña, former Independiente goalkeeper, and the aforementioned Renzo López are part of Al Baten. On the Al-Nassr side, although sitting on the substitutes’ bench, he was Agustín Rossi. The former Boca lost his position a few games ago and does not enjoy the continuity that he surely imagined.
Despite the fact that in the previous one they faced a potential pointer with the last one in the league, the process was fought and it was defined in the final. Al-Nassr’s draw only came 47 minutes into the second half. Luiz Gustavo sent in a front cross and first-class Abdulrahman Ghareeb grabbed the volley ball.
But of course, the match referee had added 12 minutes. Al-Nassr was able to turn the result around 57 minutes into the plugin thanks to Mohammed Al-Fatil. Two minutes later, with time already up, Mohammed Maran received a ball in the center of the areahe took his time and defined Campaña’s right post.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance
The Portuguese, who has scored 8 goals since his arrival in Saudi Arabia, had a rather discreet encounter. Despite having completed the entire game and facing a rival, a priori of a low level, the 37-year-old star could not get great advantages.
Accustomed to the old days of the former Real Madrid player, it is rare that he does not participate in his team’s goals, either through a goal or an assist.
