Arab Club Champions Cup: Ronaldo Reacts To Al-Nassr’s Latest Result

Al-Nassr forward Cristiano Ronaldo has sent a positive message on social media despite the Saudi giants being held to a 0-0 draw by Al-Shabab in their Arab Club Champions Cup opener on Friday.


Al-Nassr locked horns with league rivals Al-Shabab in their first group-stage game of the Arab Club Champions Cup at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh.


Al Leith appeared to have the upper hand over Luis Castro’s men, registering four shots on target and boasting 52% possession.


It’s worth noting that Al-Nassr named a weakened starting lineup to face Al-Shabab, having flown in from Japan only hours ago.

Ronaldo had to settle for a place on the bench after starting in a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan less than 48 hours ago.


The 38-year-old attempted to snatch a winner for Al-Aalami after coming on as a substitute in the 62nd minute.


The five-time Ballon d’Or winner found the back of the net with an incredible acrobatic effort 12 minutes after coming on but saw the goal ruled out for offside.


Despite the frustration, the Portuguese icon appeared upbeat as he issued a message on social media following the game.


“Tough first game in the group stage! Two more games to go. We keep fighting!”, Cristiano Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.
