Determination : Cristiano Ronaldo’s Impact at Al-Nassr
Cristiano Ronaldo and his new team came up short in the title race last season, and so he will be determined not to let that happen again. Factor in the famous faces that have now joined him in the league who will be aiming to outshine the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, and Ronaldo should be even more keen to ensure he remains top dog in his new home.
Monitoring Ronaldo’s Performance
GOAL is here to ensure you don’t miss out on any of Ronaldo’s displays during his first full season in the Middle East, as we will be casting our eye over and giving an evaluation on how he fares in each of his outings in 2023-24.
September 19: Persepolis 0-2 Al-Nassr, AFC Champions League
A far from ideal display from Ronaldo as Al-Nassr got their Champions League campaign underway. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner looked lost on a day where his side barely scraped by 10-man Iranian side Persepolis. Ronaldo took just one shot in the entire match and completed zero successful dribbles.
September 16: Al-Raed 1-3 Al-Nassr Pro League
Returning from the international break, Ronaldo wasn’t shy in trying his luck against Al-Raed, with the Portuguese firing in a number of shots from long-range in the first half in between being the victim of some rough challenges from the home defenders.
September 2: Al-Hazm 1-5 Al-Nassr Pro League
Cristiano Ronaldo was central to just about everything good for Nassr against Hazm, as they recorded a big win. Ronaldo was involved in the opening goal, collecting the ball around 30 yards from goal and driving at the Hazm defense before providing an assist.
August 29: Al-Nassr 4-0 Al-Shabab, Pro League
Late-career Ronaldo has functioned like this for some time. He spent most of his time making runs or drifting out wide, but seldom got involved in play. Still, the few touches he had were clinical – and emphatic.
August 25: Al-Fateh 0-5 Al-Nassr, Pro League
This was Ronaldo in his element. The 38-year-old was firing on all cylinders, pushing forward as a direct goal threat when he saw the opportunity or making the sensible pass to link up with his teammates. His assist for the opening goal was classic CR7.
August 22: Al-Nassr 4-2 Shabab Al-Ahli, AFC Champions League
For a long time, it looked like being one of those nights for Ronaldo. Against Shabab Al-Ahli, he saw three penalty shouts turned down in the first half alone.
August 18: Al-Nassr 0-2 Al-Taawoun, Pro League
As Ronaldo was slipped through in the dying stages of Al-Nassr’s clash with Al-Taawoun, it seemed he was going to redeem himself after an underwhelming evening in Riyadh. Instead, he saw his close-ranged effort cannon back off the inside of the post.
August 14: Al-Ettifaq 2-1 Al-Nassr, Pro League
A far from ideal start to Al-Nassr’s title bid, but none of the blame can be laid at Ronaldo’s door as he sat out the Saudi Pro League opener through injury.
