Ronaldo is decisive in Al-Nassr’s victory over Abha.

Framing night for Cristiano Ronaldo, who was decisive in Al-Nassr’s victory against Abha in the Saudi league. CR7’s team, down 1-0 at the end of the first half due to Adam’s goal, overturned the result in the second half, inspired by the former Juve forward.

Ronaldo found the 1-1 with a great free kick in the 78th minute, and then let Talisca take the penalty kick for the final 2-1: the Brazilian offensive midfielder is in fact in the running for the league’s top scorer title, and the Portuguese star, the designated penalty taker, wanted to do him a favor.

In the standings, Al Nassr is now second only one point behind the leading Al -Ittihad.
