Cristiano Ronaldo has celebrated winning nine games in a row with Al-Nassr following Friday’s 2-1 defeat of Al Ta’ee.
Ronaldo scored and assisted a goal each in the game at the Prince Abdul Aziz bin Musa’ed Stadium in Ha’il.
The score was level at 1-1 after 87 minutes when he slotted an excellent penalty into the bottom left corner.
It was Ronaldo’s 10th goal in six consecutive league matches as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner continues to prove his dominance, following an exit from European football last year.
They are now two points behind leaders Al-Hilal – a remarkable turnaround from a side who lost their opening two games.
Al Nassr, playing against a side placed seven spots below it, started the match on the offensive, with a quartet having ample European football experience.
Otavio, Sadio Mane and Anderson Talisca kept the ball progression consistent up the pitch while Ronaldo spearheaded the attack.
Taking to his Twitter account after the game, the Portuguese star, congratulated his teammates and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
He wrote; “Another important victory and 9 wins in a row! Well done Team! Let’s keep the good work!💪🏼💙💛”
