Cristiano Ronaldo crucial goal saves Al-Nassr title hopes, what are the chances of Saudi Giants becoming Champions?

Cristiano Ronaldo was back to his best as he scored a great goal to help his club Al Nassr win a 3-2 comeback victory against Al Shabab.

Al-Nassr had fallen 2-0 after Cristian Guanca scored two goals for Al Shabab. But, with a superb finish, Al Nassr’s Anderson Talisca scored a goal before halftime.

After the start of the second half, Abdulrahman Ghareeb leveled the game for Al-Nassr before Ronaldo stole the stage.

He received the ball from 30 yards out and ran forward with it before shooting the ball into the top corner from outside the penalty box.

Can Al Nassr win the title?

The win edges Al Nassr closer to winning the Saudi Pro League. They are now on 63 points, just three points behind leaders Al Ittihad. However, only two games are remaining which means if Al Ittihad doesn’t drop points, it will be impossible for Al Nassr to win the title.

Al Nassr faces Ettifaq and Al Fateh, games that won’t be that hard to win. But the team has been seen making crucial mistakes many times, often leading to defeat. They will need to win both games if they want to win the title.

Meanwhile, Al Ittihad also faces Al Feiha and Al Ta’ee, both of which would be easy games for the Saudi league leaders. 

Al Nassr will look to Cristiano Ronaldo to help them win their remaining games if they want to win the title.

Cristiano Ronaldo at Al Nassr so far

Ronaldo has nine victories, two draws, and four losses in all competitions in his four months with the club. The five-time winner has some right to be upset, having scored 14 goals in his 16 games. The Portuguese forward may not win any trophy at the end of the season. This could make him trophyless for the second season in a row.

Ronaldo had his second cup exit of the season when Al Wehda beat Al Nassr 1-0. This was in the King Cup of Champions semi-finals. Additionally, he was already eliminated from the Saudi Super Cup in January. And now his club is three points behind league leaders Al Ittihad.

Ronaldo has also had some negative incidents on the pitch. He performed a harsh tackle on an opposition player earning him some mockery from fans. And also apparently did an indecent gesture towards rival fans.

The striker is also facing some off-the-field problems. He was recently seen in a hospital where his daughter was undergoing surgery. He is also reportedly facing problems in his relationship with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.

There are also rumors that the forward now wants to leave the club and return to Europe next season.

Al Nassr will next face Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League next Sunday. Ronaldo will hope to score again and help his team win the game.
