Al Nassr forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, laid on two assists as they defeated Al Taawoun 2-1 on Friday to go back to the top of the Saudi Pro League.
Ronaldo’s first assist came in the 17th minute, when he played a superb long-range through ball from halfway that sent Abdulrahman Ghareeb clear to finish calmly with his right foot.
But Al Taawoun, who sit fifth in the league standings, hit back two minutes after half-time through a fine volley from former Real Madrid, Valencia and Chicago Fire FC midfielder Alvaro Medran.
Al Nassr were not to be denied, though, and grabbed the winning goal with 12 minutes remaining.
Ronaldo redirected a shot from former Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo back into the path of Abdullah Madu to slam the ball home from close range.
