Cristiano Ronaldo and Anderson Talisca each scored a brace as Al Nassr crushed Al Adalah 5-0 in the Saudi Pro League on Wednesday at the Prince Abdullah Bin Jalawi Stadium.
The Portuguese opened the scoring in the 40th minute, converting a penalty after Abdulaziz Al-Jamaan fouled Abdulelah Al-Amri inside the penalty box.

Al Nassr kept the pressure on in the second half, and as a result, the Brazilian, Talisca, registered his name on the score sheet in the 55th minute, as he squeezed the ball past the keeper for his team’s second goal.
Ronaldo tripled the lead 11 minutes later with his second goal, assisted by Talisca, making an unmarked run from the left flank to breach the last line of defence for his 11th goal of the season.
Talisca scored his second goal in the 78th minute, followed by the final goal of the match, scored by the substitute, Ayman Yahya, in the 90+8th minute.
Al Nassr remains in the second position with 52 points in 22 games, one point less than table-topper Al Ittihad, which also registered a 3-0 win over Damac.
