Cristiano Ronaldo‘s Al-Nassr lost 3-1 to Al-Ittihad in the semi-final of the Saudi Arabian Super Cup, with the defeat marking the Portuguese star’s second match with his new team.
Rudi Garcia’s side could hardly do anything as they were far inferior to their opponents, with Ronaldo having very few chances in front of goal.
The only positive aspect of the game for Ronaldo, who made his debut last Sunday, was the welcome he received from the local fans, as can be seen in the video below.
However, Cristiano played the full 90 minutes and once again failed to find the back of the net. Anderson Talisca‘s goal was no match for goals from Romarinho, Abderrazak and Muhannad Al-Shanqeeti though.
This result means that Al-Ittihad will face Al-Feihad in the final with the latter causing a huge surprise by beating the pre-tournament favorites, Al-Hilal.
