Cristiano Ronaldo continued his brilliant goalscoring form in the Saudi Pro League after scoring the third goal in Al-Nassr’s 3-1 victory over Al-Wehda on Saturday.
Ronaldo’s goal arrived in the 49th minute after an Al-Wehda defender had attempted to head the ball back to his goalkeeper. Ronaldo pounced by sharply intercepting the pass and guiding a low half-volley into the net.
The 38-year-old is now three goals clear of Al-Hilal’s Aleksandar Mitrovic in the race for the Saudi Pro League’s Golden Boot and has now been directly involved in 20 goals in just 12 Saudi Pro League games this season.
As well as scoring 13 league goals this season, Ronaldo has provided seven assists. Ronaldo’s former Manchester United team-mate Alex Telles was also on the scoresheet as he grabbed the first goal of the game after just 11 minutes.
