    Al Nassr loses to Al Ain after the penalty shootout!

    Al Nassr went behind by three goals on aggregate very early on but a second-half masterclass by the home side made sure it goes level by the end of regulation time. Nassr went down to 10 men at the start of extra time and Al Ain capitalised, scoring a crucial goal in the 103rd minute by Al Shamsi. The game was Ain’s to lose as Juma gives away a penalty moments before full-time. Ronaldo steps up and despite having a horrible time with his finishing throughout the game, kept his nerves and pulled his side back on level terms.
