Cristiano Ronaldo Hat-Trick Fuels Al Nassr’s Dominant 8-0 Win

Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick

Cristiano Ronaldo put on an awe-inspiring display of footballing brilliance as Al Nassr annihilated Abha 8-0 in the Saudi Pro League on Tuesday. The 39-year-old forward scored a hat-trick and provided two assists, all within the first half, showcasing his unparalleled skills and proving once again why he is considered one of the greatest players of all time.

Ronaldo wasted no time in making his mark on the game, opening the scoring in the 11th minute with a cleverly executed low free-kick that caught the Abha defense off guard. Just 10 minutes later, he doubled Al Nassr’s lead with another free-kick, this time finding a gap in the wall and leaving the goalkeeper helpless.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner then turned provider, setting up Sadio Mane for Al Nassr’s third goal just after the half-hour mark. Ronaldo’s hat-trick was completed in stunning fashion three minutes before the break when he chipped the ball over the Abha goalkeeper from outside the area, marking his 65th career hat-trick.

Ronaldo’s incredible performance didn’t stop there. He laid off the ball for Abdulmajeed Al-Sulaiheem to score Al Nassr’s fifth goal, capping off a perfect first half with five goal involvements. Fans on social media went wild after Ronaldo’s quick-fire free-kicks, with one commenting, “F* it, I’m Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Despite being substituted at halftime, Al Nassr maintained their intensity, scoring three more goals in the second half to complete the 8-0 rout. The win keeps Al Nassr in second place, 12 points behind league leaders Al Hilal. Ronaldo currently leads the Saudi Pro League scoring charts with 29 goals, seven ahead of Al Hilal’s Aleksandar Mitrovic.

This performance comes just days after Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in Al Nassr’s 5-1 win over Al Tai, highlighting his continued impact since joining the Saudi club in January. However, despite his individual success, Al Nassr remains out of contention for the league title and has been eliminated from the AFC Champions League and domestic cup competitions.

Ronaldo’s masterclass against Abha serves as a reminder of his enduring quality and his ability to single-handedly change the course of a game. As he continues to shine in the Saudi Pro League, fans around the world eagerly await his next breathtaking performance.
