In today’s Saudi Pro League match, the legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo led his team, Al-Nassr, against Damac FC at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium. The stakes were high for Al-Nassr, who was just one point behind the league leaders, Al-Ittihad. A win today would take them to the top of the table, and they were the favorites to win despite being the away team.
The game got off to a thrilling start, with Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick in the first half to give Al-Nassr a commanding 3-0 lead at halftime. The visitors’ form had been outstanding, and they were in top form with two wins in two matches.
On the other hand, Damac FC had only won one game since October of last year and were languishing in seventh place, 18 points behind Al-Nassr. Despite being the home team, their chances of winning seemed slim.
This match was not the first time that Al-Nassr and Damac had faced each other, as they had played eight times in the league since 2019. Al-Nassr had dominated the series with five wins, while Damac had only managed to win once. The other two games ended in a draw. The teams had met each other in September last year, with Al-Nassr emerging victorious with a 2-1 win.
In conclusion, Al-Nassr’s impressive performance, especially with Ronaldo’s hat-trick, made them the clear favorites to win against Damac FC. The result of this match could have significant implications for the Saudi Pro League table, and it will be interesting to see how the second half unfolds.
