Ronaldo‘s contribution has helped Al Nassr strengthen their bid to end Al Hilal’s three-year dominance.

Al Nassr top the Saudi League by two points, with Al Ittihad in second on 41 points.

Defending champions Al Hilal are 11 points off top spot – but they have a whopping three games in hand which could fire them into title contention.

Ronaldo’s goal-scoring form started against Al Fateh on February 3.

The five-time Champions League and Ballon d’Or winner netted a last gasp equaliser in the 2-2 draw.

In his next outing against Al Wehda, Ronaldo scored an astonishing FOUR goals.

Eight days later he turned provider against Al Taawoun in the 2-1 win, assisting both Al Nassr goals.

And then last Saturday, Ronaldo bagged his second Saudi League hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Damac.


Like Ronaldo is enjoying life away from Manchester United, the Red Devils are enjoying life with him.

Erik ten Hag’s men secured their first trophy of the season, winning Sunday’s Carabao Cup final with Newcastle 2-0.

The Red Devils are still contesting the Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup.
