By Score More

Al Nassr, led by Portuguese coach Luís Castro and featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of the National Team, in a prominent role, secured the Arabian Champions Cup on Saturday against Al Hilal, managed by compatriot Jorge Jesus, winning 2-1 with two goals from CR7.

Jorge Jesus’s team struck first, with Brazilian Michael (51′) finding the net, a familiar name to Cristiano Ronaldo from their time together at Flamengo. However, Cristiano Ronaldo showcased his prowess in a memorable performance.

Despite being reduced to ten players (a red card at 71′), Ronaldo equalized with a striker’s goal at the 74th minute. He saw a goal disallowed for an offside position at the 84th minute and in extra time, once again seizing the opportunity with a header from a rebound off the crossbar, sealed the game (98′).

Luís Castro was sent off at the 103rd minute, after a player (Al-Boushail) received a red card at the 78th minute, and Cristiano Ronaldo did not finish the match due to injury.
