After half-time, Al Fateh again took the lead as Sofiana Bendebka scored and the side were onto the course to grab those three points. However, Al-Nassr got a penalty late in the game which Ronaldo fired in keeping his cool and getting his side to a draw.
Al-Nassr are leading the league table with 34 points under their belt with Al-Shabab behind them (34 points). Ronaldo's side still have one game extra in hand compared to Al-Shabab's 16 matches played. In the last five matches, Al-Nassr have won three and drawn two of their games.
Before this, Ronaldo scored in the exhibition against Lionel Messi's Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in January 2023. PSG won that clash 5-4 against Al-Riyadh (All Star Saudi Arabia eleven).
