CristianoRonaldo-al nassr

Cristiano Ronaldo and Al Nassr opened their AFC Champions League group stage campaign with a dogged 2-0 away win at Iran’s Persepolis.

A terrible pitch at the Azadi Stadium made it impossible for either side to keep possession and create chances as the hosts struggled to fight for a draw from the start in Tehran.

However, Milad Sarlak’s second-half dismissal allowed the visitors to press home their advantage as Abdulrahman Ghareeb scraped home a breakthrough goal.

Defender Mohammed Qassem scored the second goal late on as Ronaldo and Co returned to Riyadh with a hard-earned three points.
