Cristiano Ronaldo: this is how we saw his debut at Al Nassr, a start without a goal and with statistics similar to his last games

The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to official football it has been with victory and with leadership in hand. Al Nassr beat Al Etiffaq 1-0 and took the lead in the Saudi Professional League.

It was an acceptable debut for Cristiano Ronaldo, from the ovation he generated every time he touched the ball in the previous warm-up to the plays he caused in the rival area that could have ended in a goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo did not score, but it was a good game for the Portuguese, who was more of an area player and played a lot of part in Al Nassr’s attacks.

It is the first official match for Cristiano – he played the friendly against PSG last Thursday – since he played the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Just before the start of the tournament he parted ways with Manchester United, so he had to look for a new club. On December 30, his arrival at Al Nassr was made official.

In the 1-0 draw against Al Ettifaq, Cristiano Ronaldo played one of his best games since October 9, 2022, when he faced Everton against United, according to SofaScore statistics. After that match, he played six with Manchester and another five with Portugal, but without being able to shine.

He did not shine either in his debut at Al Nassr, but he came out with a satisfied smile for the result and his return to football. He had a 6.9 SofaScore, with 4 shots in total: 1 on target, 1 off and 2 blocked. Even in Talisca’s goal play, he narrowly missed and he is the one who connects with his head to convert.

He only touched the ball 41 times, but two of them were very dangerous since they could have ended in a goal: in one he feinted well on the left, leaving his rival lying and his center narrowly ending in a goal by Al Sulaiheem. He had an 89% pass rate, which speaks to the fact that he always found the best-placed teammate.
