Football News: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Goal Halts Al-Ittihad Title Celebration. In the 59th minute, Ronaldo sealed the comeback win with a curling shot from just outside the box, prompting his teammates to immediately mob him. On Tuesday, May 23rd, Cristiano Ronaldo delivered a breathtaking winner, leading Al-Nassr to a remarkable comeback victory of 3-2 against Al-Shabab. This result temporarily halted Al-Ittihad’s Saudi Pro League title celebrations.

Al-Ittihad maintains their status as favourites to secure the title with two remaining games in the season. They achieved a 1-0 victory over Al-Batin, courtesy of Romarinho’s ninth-minute header.

Sitting at the top of the league with 66 points, Al-Ittihad maintains a three-point lead over Al-Nassr. Additionally, they hold the advantage in the head-to-head comparison, which serves as the primary tiebreaker if the teams end up with the same number of points.

Meanwhile, in Riyadh, Al-Nassr supporters witnessed their team’s astonishing turn of events. They conceded two goals from Cristian Guanca, including one from a penalty, within the first 40 minutes at Al-Awwal Park.

However, Talisca revived Al-Nassr’s hopes by scoring a minute before halftime. Abdel-Rahman Ghareeb then levelled the scores just six minutes into the second half.

The comeback was completed by Ronaldo’s remarkable curling shot from just outside the box in the 59th minute, prompting an immediate celebration from his teammates.

Ronaldo told SSC TV that the team had played a fantastic game and acknowledged that being behind 2-0 was very challenging. However, he mentioned that they believed until the end and managed to score three goals.

Al-Ittihad goalkeeper Marcelo Grohe visibly displayed disappointment when fans informed him of the final score at Al-Nassr. However, his club retains a chance to secure their first league title since 2009 by defeating 12th-placed Al-Feiha in the upcoming match on Saturday, May 27th.
