Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace as 9-man Al Nassr secured a comeback 2-1 win over Al Hilal in the Arab Club Champions Cup final on Saturday.

The legendary Portuguese forward has won his first silverware with the Saudi outfit as he lifted the trophy aloft as captain after he joined the side from Manchester United in January.

Ronaldo won the golden boot and inspired Al Nassr to glory at the King Fahd Stadium by forcing the game to extra time with a 74th-minute equalizer and an extra-time winner before leaving the pitch in tears, with an injury.

The 38-year-old is no stranger to delivering on the biggest stage as he helped his side win the Arab Club Champions Cup in what was his 35th overall trophy.

The King Salman Arab Club Champions Cup is the latest trophy in the superstar forward’s cabinet, having won league titles in England, Spain, and Italy as well as a record 5 Champions League titles and the European Championships with Portugal.

Summer signings Kalidou Koulibaly, Ruben Neves, and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic all featured for Al-Hilal, Sadio Mane, Marcelo Brozovic and Alex Telles started for Al Nassr alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

Brazilian winger Michael opened the scoring for Al-Hilal with an impressive header in the 51st minute and imitated the famous ‘SIU’ celebration against Ronaldo in a ruthless moment who would later respond with a brace for his 24th goal in 2023 and his 21st final goal which earns him another Guinness World Record for the most goals scored in the final.
