However, Al Nassr’s attacking efforts faced significant challenges in finding the opposing team’s goal. Part of this was due to the home team’s proactive defense, and Al Nassr’s forwards also lacked sharpness in the first half. Meanwhile, the opponents conducted swift counter-attacks. In the 32nd minute, Onyekuru slipped the ball past Madu and attempted a shot, but Madu managed to block the ball to save Al Nassr. Later, Nwakaeme took a long-range shot wide from outside the penalty area, despite being set up by Onyekuru in a promising forward move.
In the second half, Al Nassr altered their approach to аttаck. Ronaldo switched to play a support role and contributed to creating crisp passing sequences. The scoring opened in the 50th minute when Cristiano Ronaldo’s combination play helped Talisca get a clear chance to score. Talisca beаt the opposing goalkeeper with a shot into the bottom left corner.
Just 11 minutes later, the lead was doubled by Talisca again, with Alex Telles providing an accurate cross for Anderson Talisca to score a straightforward goal.
Al Feiha pulled one back in the 66th minute, thanks to Al-Shuwaish, but the score was sealed at 3-1 by Portuguese forward Otavio with a beautiful long-range shot from outside the penalty area in the 74th minute.
With this victory, Ronaldo and his teammates climbed to second place in the Saudi Arabian Pro League with 25 points after 11 matches, trailing the league leaders, Al Hilal, by 4 points. Meanwhile, Al Feiha remаins in 8th place with 14 points.
