Ronaldo silent in the ‘Messi’ chanting… Frustration in the Saudi Super Cup final
Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr), who moved to the Middle East league, was silent and missed the chance to win.
Al Nasr lost 1-3 in the semi-finals of the Saudi Super Cup against Al Ittihad held at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh on the 27th. The Saudi Super Cup semi-finals will be played in one-on-one matches.
This competition is a stage where four teams that won and runner-up respectively in the Saudi Arabian Professional League and King Cup in the previous 2021-2022 season participate and compete for the championship cup.
Al Nasr finished 3rd in the league last season, but when Al Hilal, the professional league winner in the 2021-2022 season, won the King Cup runner-up, the right to advance to this tournament passed to Al Nasr. 메이저놀이터
Ronaldo, who played as the frontline striker, showed light movement and splendid foot talent from the beginning, but Al Ittihad faced it with organizational power and impeccable defense.
After Al Ittihad broke the opponent’s defense with a 2-1 pass in the 15th minute of the first half, Romarinho (Brazil) scored the opening goal. And in the 43rd minute of the first half, Abdur-Razaq Hamdullah (Morocco) scored an additional goal to make it 2-0.
In the 22nd minute of the second half, Talisca (Brazil) caught up with a one-goal lead, but allowed one more goal in extra time and knelt down.
Ronaldo was finally silent, and fans of the opposing team mocked him by chanting “(Lionel) Messi.”
Al Nasr is leading the league this season (10 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss, 33 points), but had to swallow the regret of being eliminated from the tournament.
