Cristiano Ronaldo broke record as Saudi Pro League top scorer

Ronaldo added not just one but two more records to his collection as Al Nassr finished second in the Saudi Pro League despite the Portuguese legend’s best efforts.

The 39-year-old struck twice in Al-Nassr’s 4-2 victory over Al-Ittihad at Al Awal Park to take his total to 35. Ronaldo’s prolific season at Al-Nassar eclipsed Abderrazak Hamdallah’s 34 from 2018-19.

Hamdallah, who was also playing for Al-Nassr at that time, scored fewer goals in fewer games than the former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker. His haul came in just 27 league games, four fewer than Ronaldo’s.

Ronaldo, who had seen a 10th-minute effort ruled out for offside, equalled the record in first-half stoppage time when he controlled Mohammed Al-Fatil’s long ball and fired home to open the scoring in his club’s final fixture of the campaign.

The Portugal international was through on goal once again 20 minutes after the restart but was brought down by Suwailem Al-Menhali, who was sent off.

However, he had to wait four minutes longer to claim his 35th of the season when he headed home from a corner before being substituted.

Abdulrahman Ghareeb’s penalty and Meshari Al-Nemer’s strike, along with goals from Farhah Al-Shamrani and Fabinho, ultimately saw the hosts prevail 4-2 to finish second, 14 points behind champions Al-Hilal but 17 clear of Al-Ahli in third.

Ronaldo’s efforts also mean he’s become the first-ever player to finish as top scorer in four different leagues.

  • La Liga (x3)
  • Serie A
  • Premier League
  • Saudi Pro League

The Portuguese hero won the Golden Boot in the Premier League in Manchester United’s 2007/08 Champions League winning campaign, scoring 31 times to match Alan Shearer’s 38-game record.

Ronaldo was the top scorer in La Liga on three occasions in his nine-year stint at Real Madrid, battling with Lionel Messi to win the gong throughout his time in Spain.

And then he scored 29 goals in 33 outings for Juventus, having moved to the Old Lady to claim the prize in Serie A.
