Ronaldo Double Keeps Al-Nassr Perfect In AFC
Tuesday saw Cristiano Ronaldo score a stunning double to help Al-Nassr maintain their perfect record in the Asian Champions League.
The Saudi Pro League team defeated Al Duhail from Qatar 4-3 in Riyadh to get to nine points from three games in Group E.
Al-Nassr led three goals in the 61st minute thanks to a long-range strike from Ronaldo
after the former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward set up Anderson Talisca
for his team's first goal in the 25th and Sadio Mane for the second.
Before Ronaldo's strike in the 81st minute gave Al Duhail a two-goal lead again, Ismaeel Mohammad and Almoez Ali had brought Al Duhail back into contention.
However, Michael Olunga's goal with five minutes remaining ensured a tight finish.
With the victory, Al-Nassr is now three points ahead of Persepolis of Iran, who defeated FC Istiklol of Tajikistan 2-0
in Tehran after seeing Alireza Beiranvand stop a penalty kick from Senin Sebai in the seventh minute.
