Posted : 17 September 2023
Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mané continued their scoring streaks as Al Nassr comfortably defeated Al Raed 3-1 on Saturday in the Saudi Pro League. This victory marked Al Nassr's fourth consecutive win after a shaky start to the season, with both Ronaldo and Mane playing pivotal roles.
Mané, who joined Al Nassr after a disappointing spell at Bayern Munich, opened the scoring just before halftime. Ronaldo added to the tally with a late goal, maintaining his position as the league's top scorer this season with seven goals, while Mane has six to his name.
In another thrilling match, former Newcastle United forward Allan Saint-Maximin scored the decisive goal as Al Ahli triumphed 3-2 over Al Taawoun. Steven Gerrard's team, Al Ettifaq, also secured a win with ex-Celtic striker Moussa Dembélé finding the net in a 3-1 victory against Abha.
Despite the competitive action, Al Hilal retained their top position in the league standings, aided by Neymar's debut performance in a commanding 6-1 win against Al Riyadh.
