Cristiano Ronaldo suffers first defeat at Al-Nasser


CRISTIANO RONALDO failed to score again as Al-Nassr were dumped out of the Saudi Super Cup.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Al-Ittihad ran out 3-1 winners to progress to the final.

Al-Nassr fought back in the second half when Talisca met Luis Gustavo’s low cross from the left and beat Marcelo Grohe with a clinical finish on 67 minutes.

But Al-Ittihad sealed the win in the third minute of added time with Muhannad Al-Shanqeeti after another assist by Romarinho.

The result means Ronaldo has now failed to score in each of his two Al-Nassr appearances.

A miserable night for Cristiano Ronaldo and co. with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner failing to stand out in his second match.

Result: Al-Ittihad 3-1 Al-Nassr


Al-Nassr: Agustin, Sultan, Mado, Alamri, Lajami, Alkhaibari, Gustavo, Martinez, Sami, Talisca, Ronaldo
