  • August 26, 2023 01:36

    A Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick and a brace by Sadio Mane leads Al Nassr to its first league win of the season as it beats Al Fateh 5-0.

  • August 26, 2023 01:29

    No goals in two league matches and in his third, Ronaldo has bagged a hat-trick. He was in the right place at the right time as he taps the ball inside the net from close-range from a Boushal cross to score his third.

  • August 26, 2023 01:27

    It is worse than it looked as Yahya is stretchered off the pitch. An uncomfortable and unfortunate end to his night.

  • August 26, 2023 01:25

    Yahya goes for a shot, which takes a deflection and goes out of play. He seemed to have caught his foot in the ground as he went for the shot and is in pain. He is getting medical attention but it looks like his stay will be shot. He came on in the 86th minute, replacing Mane.

  • August 26, 2023 01:23

    Seven minutes added at the end of the second-half.

  • August 26, 2023 01:23

    Al Nassr sub: IN- Al-Sulaiheem OUT- Otavio

  • August 26, 2023 01:22

    Al Fateh sub: IN- Al-Masoud OUT- Batna

  • August 26, 2023 01:21

    Al Nassr subs: IN- Boushal, Al-Ghannam, Yahya OUT- Sultan Al-Ghannam, Ghareeb, Mane

    What a night for Ghareeb. Two assists in the match to Ronaldo and Mane, respectively.

  • August 26, 2023 01:19
    85’ Point-blank miss by Al-Buraikan!

    It is a lovely attacking move by Al Fateh and all Al-Buraikan had to do was tap the ball inside the empty net from point-blank range. But he blasts his effort above the bar. He still can’t believe that he missed the chance.

  • August 26, 2023 01:15

    Al Nassr broke on a swift counter attack after Zelarayan’s missed opportunity. Ronaldo carries the ball a long way and passes the ball to Ghareeb. Ghareeb spots Mane and pings the ball to him. Mane goes for a looping header and finds the net.

  • August 26, 2023 01:13
    80’ Zelarayan hits the post!

    Tello slips the ball to Zelarayan , who takes a thundering shot at goal. The ball rattles the woodwork and comes back into play.

  • August 26, 2023 01:11

    Cooling break is over and the match resumes.

  • August 26, 2023 01:10

    A temporary halt as the players take a cooling break. Sweltering conditions at Al-Hasa and the fatigue among some of the players is evident as the match enters its last-quarter.

  • August 26, 2023 01:07

    Al Nassr sub: IN- Al-Najei OUT- Brozovic

  • August 26, 2023 01:06

    Zelarayan goes for a shot from outside the box but is high and wide. Al Nassr gets a goalkick.

  • August 26, 2023 01:04

    Ronaldo shows great first-touch to take down the ball on the left side of the box. He sets up Brozovic for the shot, but the latter’s first time effort sails above the crossbar.

  • August 26, 2023 01:03

    Mane gets the ball on the left and passes it to Ronaldo. Ronaldo shows his skillset as he performs an elastico - a trademark of Brazilian great Ronaldinho - to take the ball past his marker. However, he could not keep the ball in control and ends up losing possession.

  • August 26, 2023 01:00

    Tello gets past his man and squares the ball in the middle. Al-Buraikan tries to take a shot on target but his effort is blocked.

  • August 26, 2023 00:59

    Chance- Al Fateh with a chance to pull one back. Nawaf does well to save a shot from the edge of the box but is helpless as the rebound falls to Batna. Batna takes a shot at goal but balloons it over the crossbar. That is a waste.

  • August 26, 2023 00:58

    Chance- Otavio with a excellent chance to score and he takes a shot at goal. But, Alawjami makes an excellent block to deny Otavio a debut goal.

  • August 26, 2023 00:56

    Al Fateh booking: Al-Hassan is shown a yellow card as he pulled back Otavio from making his run.

  • August 26, 2023 00:54

    Batna takes a tumble inside the box from a Konan challenge. Batna wants a VAR check and there is one. But after ample scrutiny, VAR stands with the referee’s decision and instructs the match to go on.

  • August 26, 2023 00:53

    Al Fateh sub: IN- Al-Fuhaid, Al-Hassan OUT-Bendebka, Petros

  • August 26, 2023 00:52

    Ronaldo seems to be in the mood. He gets the ball inside the box. He does a couple of stepovers and goes for a shot. But the effort is blocked. He wants that hat-trick.

  • August 26, 2023 00:48

    Brozovic finds Ghareeb with a brilliant aerial through-ball as the latter timed his run well. Ghareeb sees Ronaldo in support and squares the ball to him as Rinne closed down on him. Ronaldo takes the ball and slots it inside the empty net with the simplest of finishes.

    It is his second of the match.

  • August 26, 2023 00:45

    Al Nassr booking: Brozovic sees the first yellow card of the evening for pulling down Zelarayan.

    He is not happy and tries to argue his case but the referee stays firm.

  • August 26, 2023 00:42

    Otavio finds Mane with a cheeky flick. Mane’s first touch is heavy, which allows Petros to clear the ball. Al Nassr playing some beautiful football at the moment.

  • August 26, 2023 00:41

    Ghareeb shows amazing close-control to go on another amazing run. He plays a one-two with Mane, who does well to thread the ball to him in a tight space. Ghareeb eventually loses his footing and cannot take a shot.

  • August 26, 2023 00:40

    Denayer has been one of Al Fateh’s best players. Surprising to see him subbed-off at the start of the second-half unless it is an injury we are not aware of.

  • August 26, 2023 00:39

    Al Fateh subs: IN- Baattia, Al-Harbi OUT- Al-Zubaidi, Denayer

  • August 26, 2023 00:37

    Ronaldo and Mane with the goals as Al Nassr starts the second-half with a 2-0 lead against Al Fateh.

  • August 26, 2023 00:21

    Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane keep Al Nassr in a 2-0 lead against Al Fateh at the break.

  • August 26, 2023 00:18

    It is a poor header from Alawjami as he tries to clear a ball inside the box. Ronaldo almost gets to it but Denayer gets the ball away.

  • August 26, 2023 00:16

    It is a waste of a freekick from Al Fateh as the ball is delivered straight into the hands of Nawaf.

  • August 26, 2023 00:16

    Five minutes added at the end of the first-half.

  • August 26, 2023 00:16

    Al Fateh has a free-kick on the left touchline. Can they get one back before the break?

  • August 26, 2023 00:15

    Al Nassr is enjoying so much of the ball. Al Fateh looks dazed and does not know what to do. Half-time cannot come sooner for Bilic and his players.

  • August 26, 2023 00:13

    Suddenly it is all Al Nassr and it seems to be running away from the match.

  • August 26, 2023 00:09

    Al Ghanam delivers an accurate cross inside the box from the right and Ronaldo heads the ball inside the net for his first league goal of the season.

    Ronaldo had all the time and space to pick out the net as the cross came in. That’s poor defending from Al Fateh.

  • August 26, 2023 00:07

    Tello looks to race past Al-Fatil but the defender shows heart to lunge at Tello and win the ball cleanly. It has come at a cost as he seems to have injured himself but it was more a case of an awkward landing. He should be fine to continue.

  • August 26, 2023 00:05

    A sloppy start from Al Fateh post the water break as it loses the ball cheaply. Mane almost gets to the ball but the ball is cleared just in time.

  • August 26, 2023 00:04

    The match resumes after a brief water break. Slaven Bilic was shouting instructions to his players during the break. Any guesses as to whe he was saying?

  • August 26, 2023 00:03

    Ronaldo allmost makes it 2-0 as he takes a shot at the near-post from inside the Al Fateh box. His effort is not on target.

  • August 25, 2023 23:58

    It all started with an exquisite flick from Ronaldo that set Mane through on goal. Mane then shows his class to dink the ball past Rinne to find the net.

  • August 25, 2023 23:57
    26’ Rinne denies Ronaldo!

    Mane does extremely well to get past his marker and find Ronaldo with a pullback from the right. Ronaldo goes for a first-time shot. The effort is powerful and on target, but Rinne makes an excellent save to deny Ronaldo.

  • August 25, 2023 23:54
    23’ Ronaldo comes close!

    You’d always bet in favour of Ronaldo when the ball is in the air. The Portuguese gets to the ball from a cross and tries to power it in the direction of the goal. But he has mistimed his header from close distance.

  • August 25, 2023 23:53

    Batna looks to get his head to a cross from the left flank, but Konan defends well to get the ball away from danger.

  • August 25, 2023 23:51
    20’ Otavio hits side-netting!

    Otavio comes closest to scoring in the match. He goes for a first-time shot from a cross delivered from the right. The ball rattles the side-netting.

  • August 25, 2023 23:49

    With the first-quarter of the match being played, Al Nassr has had the better chances and played the better football as expected. However, neither team has created any clear-cut chances.

  • August 25, 2023 23:47

    Ghareeb’s pace takes him first to a loose ball. He passes it short to Ronaldo. Ronaldo had support inside the box, but opts to go for the shot himself. The shot is blocked and Al Nassr has a corner.

  • August 25, 2023 23:45

    Al Nassr captain Cristiano Ronaldo with a shot from the left edge of the box. He catches it well, but it is not on target.

  • August 25, 2023 23:44

    Ghareeb with a talismanic run as he dances past challeneges. He goes for a shot but it is blocked at the edge of the box.

  • August 25, 2023 23:42

    Al Nassr loses ppossession cheaply and Al Fateh tries to start a counter with Petros. But he goes down, rather theatrically, from a challenge by Otavio.

  • August 25, 2023 23:38

    Al Fateh creates its first attack as Batna delivers a cross from the right flank. But, it was too heavy for anyone to get a head to.

  • August 25, 2023 23:38

    It would not have happened if Ronaldo had found the target. He was offside when Mane delivered a cross to him.

  • August 25, 2023 23:37

    Mane with another pinpoint delivery to Ronaldo inside the box. The Portuguese has time to take a touch and shoot, but sees his effort blocked.

  • August 25, 2023 23:35

    Chance- Mane delivers another cross from the left this time. He finds Otavio as the latter heads the ball towards goal, but cannot keep his effort on target. What a debut that would have been if he found the net.

  • August 25, 2023 23:34

    Al Nassr has started well. After enjoying early possession, it creates its first attack from the left. Mane gets past his marker and tries to find Ronaldo in the middle, but the Al Fateh defence gets the ball away.
