Cristiano Ronaldo burst into life in the Saudi Premier League match between Al Nassr and Al Wehda as he scored 4 goals in one match to steer his team to victory.
For the first goal, he peeled off the opposition defender and finished expertly as a lethal left footed shot beat the goalie as the ball nestled into the bottom corner.
For the second goal, ran on a through ball and finished it with aplomb, right through the opposition goalkeeper’s legs.
The first goal was a milestone one for the Portuguese talisman as it helped him reach 500 club goals. The 3rd goal, he scored from the spot to complete his first hattrick for Al Nassr.
The fourth goal was a replay of the second as Ronaldo latched on to a through ball, hit it straight at the goalie who parried and the superstar finished off a rebound.
Earlier, Ronaldo started for Al Nassr against Al Wehda after a week of scoring a stoppage time penalty to help orchestrate a 2-2 draw.
Ronaldo’s spot kick marked his first goal for the Saudi club since he joined them following the split with Manchester United midway through the season.
After scoring 2 goals in his start against PSG, Cristiano Ronaldo endured a dry spell in his proper Saudi Pro League debut. He couldn’t score in the first 2 matches for his new outfit which even got his team eliminated from the Saudi Cup.
In his second stint for Manchester United, he scored 0.57 goals in every 90 mins. Ho9wever, with the sole goal in his last match, Ronaldo’s stat looks like 0.33 goals per 90 mins for Al Nassr.
In a league that was supposed to be a piece of cake for him, he has had a long time to fire.
His shots per match was 4.2 in his second United stint while for his new club he has had 4.00 shots per match. He had 1.51 shots on target in United while in Saudi it has come down to 1.00. He, however, is still yet to provide an assist in this league.
