    RED CARD- Al-Shabab goes for a final push for an equaliser. Radif goes down inside the box, trying to get to the ball and sees a second yellow for simulation and he has to leave the pitch. A chaotic end to the match.

    Al-Yami fizzes a cross inside the box from the right-flank. Any sort of contact on target could have proved troublesome for Abdullah but no Al-Shabab player got a touch of the ball.

    90+2’ SHB 2-3 NAS

    Rakitic swings in a dangerous cross inside the box from an Al-Shabab corner but Abdullah does well to send the ball away with a confident punch.

    SHB booking: Al-Sharari is the latest player to get a yellow card. 

  • February 26, 2024 00:23

    Talisca is played an excellent through ball, as he times his run to perfection. He makes his way inside the box and under pressure, maintains his calm to poke the ball inside the net. Al-Absi did come off his line to try and make it difficult for Talisca, but was surprised by the Brazilian’s early shot. 

  • February 26, 2024 00:22
    85’ SHB 2-2 NAS

    71’ SHB 2-2 NAS

    Al-Harbi makes a run down the left again and finds Carrasco with the cutback. The weight of the pass, however, is too much and the Belgian cannot take the ball in his stride. 

  • February 26, 2024 00:03

    Al Shabab has kept knocking on the door and finally scored the equaliser. Al Nassr cannot clear its lines from a corner. The ball is squared across the face of the goal from the right flank and Carlos Junior is in the right place at the right time to tap the ball inside the net. 

  • February 26, 2024 00:02
    66’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Al-Harbi darts along the left flank and does well to find Carrasco with the cutback. Carrasco pulls the trigger but Laporte makes an excellent block. 

  • February 26, 2024 00:01
    65’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Carrasco cuts in and goes for a curler from the left side of the box. His shot has power but the ball does nit curl enough to go inside the net. 

  • February 26, 2024 00:00
    63’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Otavio spots Brozovic in space and passes the ball to him. Brozovic has all the time and acres of space ahead of him as the Croatian makes a run at goal. He tries to bend the ball inside the net with an early shot but does not have the technique to do so. Brozovic had more time than he realized. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:57
    60’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Talisca does his defensive duties as he intercepts Rakitic’s cross to send the ball out for a corner. Chants of “Talisca Talisca” reverberate around the stadium. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:52
    56’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Talisca almost gets at the end of a great pass from the Al Nassr half but Al Absi reads the danger and comes out to collect the ball before the Brazilian could get to it. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:48
    52’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    SHB booking: Roman Saiss gets a yellow card for a silly challenge and the Shabab captain has to be careful now. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:47
    50’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Abdullah spills the ball as he tries to collect the ball as a shot comes from distance. Carlos Junior collects the loose ball and has an open net in front of him but he looses his footing and completely botches his chance. The flag is finally raised for offside, which partially saves the blushes for the Brazilian. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:46
    49’ SHB 1-2 NAS

    Shabab almost gets an immediate equaliser. Carrasco finds Diallo with a peach of a pass. Diallo goes for the cutback, finding Carrasco. Carrasco goes for a low shot but it is straight at Abdullah, who does well to make the save. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:42

    Half-time! SHB 1-1 NAS

    Successful penalties from Yannick Carrasco and Cristiano Ronaldo keep Al Shabab and Al Nassr level at 1-1 as the match breaks for half-time. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:24

    It is an excellent penalty by Carrasco, who sends Abdullah the wrong way with his spot-kick. He struck it hard and low. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:23
    45+7’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    VAR has a look and upheld the referee’s decision. Al Shabab will have a penalty and has a chance of coming back in the match. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:20

    Laporte has tripped Carlos Junior inside the box and the referee points to the spot for an Al-Shabab penalty.

    Al Nassr players are protesting, led by Laporte. Apparently, he is saying that he did not touch him and that the contact came from behind. VAR is having a look right now. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:18
    45+1’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    Carlos Junior had a clash of heads with Ronaldo as both went for the ball and the Al Shabab player has come off worse in that. He is currently getting medical attention but should be able to continue. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:17
    45’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    41’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    Junior threads the ball to Carrasco, who makes a run inside the Nassr box. The Belgian cuts in and tries to get a shot at goal but is quickly crowded out before he can. His second touch was a tad but heavy. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:10
    40’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    Talisca swings a cross inside the box, hoping to find Mane at the far-post but Al-Sharari reads the danger and intercepts the cross and clears the ball out for a corner.

    ICYMI: It is another milestone in Cristiano Ronaldo’s fabled career

    Cristiano Ronaldo scores 750th goal in club football, widens lead over Lionel Messi

    Nassr was given a penalty due to a hand-ball offense by Shabab’s Iago Santos, as Ronaldo stepped up to the spot and buried the ball in the back of the net.

  • February 25, 2024 23:06
    35’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    Mane and Al-Sharari race for the ball, which is won by the Al Shabab man. Mane shows too much desperation to win the ball and gives Al-Sharari a nudge on the back and the referee blows the whistle. 

  • February 25, 2024 23:03
    32’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    Al-Harbi flashes a cross across the face of the goal. Carlos Junior was there and looked to get at the end of the cross but cannot reach the ball on time. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:59
    26’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    SHB booking: The referee has a look and books Shabab’s Yannick Carrasco for stepping on Alawjami. The initial thought was whether he would see red because VAR is not usually used to dishing out yellow cards. A strange one there but we go on. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:57
    25’ SHB 0-1 NAS

    There is another VAR check as Alawjami is down the ground. It seems like Carrasco had stepped on him once the Al Nassr played had gone down on the ground. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:51

    A stuttering run-up from Ronaldo but there is no lack of conviction as he takes the shot and buries the ball at the back of the net. Al Absi guessed right but could not get a hand to the ball. 

    Ronaldo has now scored his 750th career goal in club football. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:51
    20’ SHB 0-0 NAS! Penalty for Al Nassr!

  • February 25, 2024 22:50
    18’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Play has stopped for a moment as VAR is checking for a possible penalty. Iago Santos seemed to have a blocked a shot with his arm inside his box. 

    VAR has asked the referee to come and have a look at the screen. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:48
    17’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Carrasco threads a good pass to Diallo, who makes a run at goal. He is not able to cut in and is pushed wide by the Al Nassr defence. He flashes a cross across the face of the goal, hoping to find a teammate but there wasn’t any Shabab player to attack the cross. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:44
    12’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Carrasco cuts in from the left and goes for a low shot at the near-post. But Nassr keeper Abdullah shows good reflexes to get down and makes the save, sending the ball out for a corner. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:42
    11’ SHB 0-0 NAS! Mane’s goal cancelled due to offside!

    It is an excellent counter attack by Al Nassr. Mane is played a good pass from the left and he makes his way inside the box. Al Absi comes off his line to narrow the angle for him, but the Senegalese dinks the ball over Al Absi to find the net. However, the goal does not count as Mane is flagged offside. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:41
    10’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Rakitic gets the ball and decides to shoot. He pulls the trigger from distance, which forces a save from Abdullah.

    6’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Talisca is not able to get his shot away but Brozovic spots the loose ball and goes for first-time shot from the edge of the box. The shot takes a dangerous deflection but Shabab keeper Al Absi is alert enough to push the ball over a corner. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:35
    3’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Shabab has started as the stronger team here, putting the Al Nassr defence under pressure. Cristiano Ronaldo and his team are yet to find their footing in the match. 

  • February 25, 2024 22:32
    1’ SHB 0-0 NAS

    Habib Diallo gets the ball and makes a run at the Nassr goal. He looked offside but keeps running as the whistle does not come. Finally, it does and Al Nassr has a freekick.
