Cristiano Ronaldo secured a 2-2 draw for Al Nassr against Al Fateh with a late penalty kick goal, his first in the Saudi Pro League. Despite being behind twice, Ronaldo persevered and capitalized on his opportunity from the spot in stoppage time.
The game was heated, with tensions running high and Ronaldo’s teammate Talisca being sent off after a controversial tackle.
Cristian Tello, playing in his debut match for Al Fateh, opened the scoring with a stunning volley that was later topped by teammate Sofian Bendebka’s goal. Talisca equalized for Al Nassr just before halftime, bringing the score to a draw.
However, his game was tarnished by a reckless tackle, which was deemed a red card after review from VAR.
