Back to Shine: Cristiano Ronaldo Nets a Hat-Trick in the Saudi Arabian League

Cristiano Ronaldo reaffirmed his greatness on the field, even at the age of 39. The player, now representing Al Nassr, recently achieved an extraordinary feat by scoring three goals in a single match, famously known as a hat-trick.

These three goals were scored by Ronaldo during Al Nassr’s encounter with Al Tai in the ongoing Saudi Arabian League 2023/2024, held at Al Awwal Park on Sunday (31/3/2024) in the early hours.

Initially, Al Nassr took the lead with a goal from Otavio in the 20th minute. However, their advantage was short-lived as Virgil Misidjan quickly equalized to make it 1-1 just two minutes later.

Subsequently, misfortune struck Al Tai when Misidjan received his second yellow card, resulting in a red card and his dismissal from the field. Al Nassr capitalized on this situation and regained the lead through a goal from Abdulrahman Ghaareb in injury time of the first half.

In the second half, Al Nassr completely dominated the game. Cristiano Ronaldo then showcased his brilliance by scoring three consecutive goals in the 65th, 67th, and 87th minutes.

This hat-trick achievement marks the 64th in Ronaldo’s professional career. He made his debut in 2002 and has continued to demonstrate his sharpness on the field for over two decades.

Interestingly, Ronaldo’s first hat-trick occurred in January 2008 when he scored three goals in Manchester United’s 6-0 victory over Newcastle in the Premier League.

After the match, Ronaldo expressed his joy through a social media post, writing, “This is how we do it. Another incredible win and another hat-trick!”

Furthermore, his three goals against Al Tai kept Ronaldo as the top scorer in the Saudi Arabian League for the 2023/2024 season. With a total of 26 goals, he maintains a four-goal lead over Aleksandar Mitrovic of Al Hilal.

However, despite Ronaldo’s individual success, Al Nassr still trails Al Hilal by 12 points in the league standings. Nevertheless, Ronaldo’s contributions in front of goal remain a valuable asset to his team.
