Cristiano Ronaldo’s Trophy Drought Continues as Al-Nassr Miss Out on Saudi Pro League Title

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hopes of ending the season with a trophy have been dashed once again as Al-Nassr fell short in their pursuit of the Saudi Pro League title. The Portuguese football icon will undoubtedly be disappointed after his team could only manage a 1-1 draw on Saturday, while Al-Ittihad secured the championship with a resounding 3-0 victory.

As they headed into their away match against Ettifaq, CR7’s side already trailed their rivals by three points with just two games remaining. Al-Ittihad, playing at Al Feiha, knew that a win would put them on the brink of glory, regardless of Al-Nassr’s result.

Unfortunately for Al-Nassr, they conceded a goal just before halftime, finding themselves 1-0 down. In the second half, Ronaldo was seen actively instructing his teammates, directing their movements and passes. His guidance paid off as Luis Gustavo scored the equalizer in the 56th minute, leveling the score at 1-1. However, Al-Nassr couldn’t find the winning goal they desperately needed.

Meanwhile, at Al Feiha’s Prince Mohamed bin Fahd Stadium, Al-Ittihad cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory, extending their lead to five points. With only one game left to play, this lead proved insurmountable for Al-Nassr, and Al-Ittihad secured their ninth Saudi Pro League crown, drawing level with Al-Nassr’s record of nine titles.

For Ronaldo, this season ends without silverware, mirroring his trophyless campaign from the previous year. The superstar forward, known for his desire for success, will likely be disappointed by the outcome. Nonetheless, his individual contributions and leadership on the pitch were evident in Al-Nassr’s battle for the title.
