Al Hilal vs Al Nassr Player Rating as Ronaldo Frustrated As Al-Hilal Beat Al Nassr to Win Riyadh Season Cup


Cristiano Ronaldo made his first appearance in 2024 but was unable to prevent Al Nassr from losing 2-0 to Al-Hilal on Thursday.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored the opening goal, before Salem Aldawsari’s superb lob doubled Al-Hilal’s lead in the 30th minute.

Al-Hilal came close to extending their advantage further on several occasions, with two goals disallowed for offside.

Ronaldo, who played the full 90 minutes, almost gifted Al-Hilal a goal midway through the first half when he put the ball in his own half with a reckless back-heel pass.

At the other end, Ronaldo had four shots, but only one forced goalkeeper Yassine Bounou into action.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker, who played just 72 hours after his 39th birthday, was caught offside three times.

A frustrated Ronaldo was shown a yellow card in the 53rd minute for angrily kicking the ball away from a free-kick for Al-Hilal.

Thursday’s match was the third and final match of the 2024 Riyadh Season Cup.

The mini-series began on 29 January when Al-Hilal defeated Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami 4-3.

An Al Nassr side without Ronaldo then beat Miami 6-0 three days later.

But Thursday’s defeat saw Al Nassr finish second in the round robin format behind Al-Hilal, who were rewarded with a shiny trophy bizarrely handed to them by WWE legend The Undertaker before the match.

Al-Hilal are also well placed to win the Saudi Pro League ahead of Al Nassr.

After 19 rounds of matches, Al-Hilal lead the table with 53 points, while Al Nassr are second with 46.
