Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo witnessed a masterclass from Cristiano Ronaldo as Al Nassr triumphed over Al Wehda with an impressive 6-0 victory, keeping their title aspirations alive in the Saudi Pro League.

The match saw Ronaldo shine brightly, making an impact just five minutes into the game by capitalizing on a mistake from Wehda’s goalkeeper, Munir Mohamedi, to open the scoring.

Ronaldo continued his scoring spree with a header from Marcelo Brozovic’s cross and a composed finish after a one-on-one opportunity.

Senegal star, Sadio Mane set up Otavio for a goal before getting on the scoresheet himself with a clever one-two play with Otavio.

Ronaldo’s brilliance was further highlighted as he completed his hat-trick in the 50th minute, taking advantage of a through pass from Mane to add to Al Nassr’s commanding lead.

Mohamed Al-Fatil sealed the emphatic victory with a goal of his own, securing a memorable win for Al Nassr.

Despite Ighalo’s efforts for Al Wehda, Ronaldo’s performance proved too much to handle for the opposition. The Portuguese superstar’s clinical finishing and overall impact on the game earned him praise and admiration, with his hat-trick marking another milestone, the 66th in his illustrious career.

With a crucial matchup against Al-Akhdoud on the horizon, Al Nassr will look to build on this impressive victory as they continue their pursuit of the Saudi Pro League title.
