Can Ronaldo get back on the scoresheet?
The goals have dried up lately for Cristiano Ronaldo. The striker has gone goalless in three of Al Nassr’s last four games. But to be fair, he did have a goal ruled out in last week’s 1-1 home draw against Al Khaleej.
Nevertheless, with Al Nassr’s title hopes hanging in the balance, Ronaldo will be determined to improve his 12-goal tally to help his team grab a vital victory.
