Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to start when Al-Nassr take on Morocco’s Raja Casablanca in the quarter-finals of the Arab Club Cup on Sunday (August 6).
Luis Castro’s side came into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Zamalek in their last match in the group stage. Cristiano Ronaldo scored an equalizer on that occasion in the 87th minute to salvage a point for the Saudi Arabian side.
A draw against Zamalek saw Al-Nassr finish second in their group and have now been drawn against Raja Casablanca in the quarter-finals.

The Senegalese forward made his debut for his new team against Zamalek, coming off the bench in the second half.
Al-Nassr gained strength and depth in attack with the addition of Mane. Regular starters in the form of Anderson Talisco and Abdulrahman Ghareeb and still available for selection for the match against Raja Casablanca.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. they will have a tough game against an in-form Raja Casablanca team. The Moroccan team won all three of their group matches and advanced to the quarter-finals, conceding only one goal in the tournament.
The winner of the tie between Al-Nassr and Raja Casablanca will face Iraqi side Al-Shorta in the semi-finals.
