Cristiano Ronaldo scores a great goal and Al Nassr advances in the Asian Champions League – La Opinion


Cristiano Ronaldo is having a top start to 2024 in terms of his performance on the field of play and it seems that he is looking to emulate what he did in 2023 by becoming the top scorer of that year.

Recently his team in the Saudi Pro League, Al Nassr had a 2-0 victory against Al Feiha in what was the second leg of the Asian Champions League, a duel that took place at the Al-Awwal Stadium facilities, and thanks to the 1-0 in the first leg, his team immediately obtained a direct ticket to the quarterfinals.

Age does not weigh on CR7 at all

Ronaldo continues to show that in his case age is just a number and his almost 40 years of age do not weigh on him at all since he had scored in the first match of the series and in the weekend match against Al Fateh, ‘CR7’ found the scoreboard again in the last quarter of an hour as he did at the start of the Asian Champions League tie.

The Portuguese striker received a long ball from Marcelo Brozovic that left Ronaldo one on one against goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic and Cristiano did not need to do much to be able to score the goal that put an end to the victory at 85 minutes of the game; The former Real Madrid, Juventus and Manchester United player managed to score his third goal so far in 2024.

Cristiano Ronaldo is on his way to being a strong candidate to once again be the top scorer of the current year if he continues to play at the level he has done so far. The Portuguese could have even scored a second goal but it was correctly annulled by the referee team.

Ronaldo for the record of the greatest scorer in history

‘El Bicho’, as Ronaldo is also known, continues to expand the advantage he has over Lionel Messi within the framework of the career of the greatest scorer of all time.

The 39-year-old forward reached 876 goals compared to the 822 of the Argentine star who belongs to the ranks of Inter Miami of Major League Soccer and also world champion with the Argentine team.

The Ronaldo-Messi duo is also the protagonist of the contest in terms of the top scorers in the national team field. A few days after having a new FIFA date, the Portuguese striker has a total of 128 goals in 205 games played with Portugal compared to Lionel Messi’s 106 (and 54 assists) in a total of 180 appearances with the Argentina national team.

Now, Al Nassr will return to action this coming Sunday when they must face Al Shabab as a visitor for the local championship and on Thursday the 29th they will host one of the bottom teams in the Arab championship, Al Hazm. On Monday, March 4, he must travel to the United Arab Emirates for the first leg match valid for the quarterfinals of the Asian Champions League against Al Ain, who was River Plate’s executioner in the 2018 Club World Cup.
