The Saudi Arabian squad, Al Nassr, that Ronaldo just recently signed has received an invitation to compete in the Arab Club Champions Cup competition in 2023. This is a clear indication of the celebrity’s enormous popularity across the nation (Arab C1 Cup).
In accordance with the rules that have been established for the C1 Arab Cup, which is scheduled to take place in 2023, the 37 clubs that have earned the privilege of competing in the tournament will be those that finished either first or second in their respective Arab divisions. On the other hand, Al Ahly (Egypt) withdrew from the competition prior to the draw being made.
The organizers of the competition came to the conclusion that it would be in everyone’s best interest to extend an invitation to Al Nassr, which is found in Saudi Arabia, so that they can take part in the competition. This will contribute to ensuring that a sufficient number of clubs are present at the event. Al Nassr will proceed directly to the group stage of the competition because they are the team that will represent Saudi Arabia in the competition. They will compete in Group C alongside Zamalek (Egypt) and two other qualifying teams. The first matches of the group stage are scheduled to take place on February 20, and they will continue until July 2023.
In 2023, if Al Nassr is victorious in the Arab C1 Cup, Ronaldo will have the opportunity to add even more hardware to his already remarkable collection if he is a part of the Portuguese team that wins the tournament. At this point in the competition, Al Nassr is in a position where he has a very excellent possibility of coming out on top and winning the whole thing. Saudi Arabia is now in first place with 46 points to their name after a total of 19 matches.
After his arrival in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo has gotten off to a fantastic start for Al Nassr, scoring 8 goals in 7 appearances for the club. Ronaldo has played for Al Nassr. However, CR7 and his teammates were unable to triumph in the Saudi Super Cup because they were defeated by Al Hilal. CR7’s teammate’s names are in italics. Because of this, CR7 was unable to win the trophy for his team.
After a supporter informed Cristiano Ronaldo, “Lionel Messi is superior,” the player did not waste any time responding.
Cristiano Ronaldo stepped into the tunnel to leave the field after Al Nassr’s 3-1 victory over Al Batin in the Saudi Premier League. The match’s final score was Al Nassr 3, Al Batin 1. In this instance, a supporter of Ronaldo’s said to him, “Lionel Messi is the superior player,” to which CR7 immediately responded.
The winner of the Ballon d’Or an unprecedented five times gives the impression that he is not too concerned about that. The tension caused by Ronaldo’s anger was palpable throughout the game between Al Nassr and Al Batin. The best squad, Al Nassr, went into the match with the expectation that they would easily prevail over the worst club, Al Batin.
But, Ronaldo’s team was ʜɪᴛ with a bucket of cold water when Al Batin’s Renzo Lopez scored the game’s first goal in the 17th minute. After the break, the score was still 1-0, and it remained that way on the electronic board all the way into the final period. But, Al Nassr scored three amazing goals upstream in more than ten minutes of injury time towards the finish of the match to win 3-1 and continue to keep the top spot in the Saudi Premier League chart.
A supporter yelled at Ronaldo as he headed into the tunnel to exit the field following the game, saying, “You’re the best!” “When Ronaldo was told, “Messi is so much better than you!,” he quickly responded, “That was such an easy game!” That was a perfect match in every way! “.
It is thought that the Portuguese player, who is 38 years old, is referring, not to Messi, but rather to the encounter between Al Nassr and Al Batin. Since Ronaldo took home his first Ballon d’Or in 2008, he and Messi have shared a total of 12 victories in the competition together.
It appeared that Al Batin would make a splash at Al Nassr’s home field in the regular ninety minutes, but three goals in extra time from Abdulrahman Ghareeb, Mohammed Al-Fatil, and Mohammed Maran pulled it home for the ᴛʜʀɪʟʟɪɴɢ triumph for skipper Ronaldo’s club.
Ronaldo, who began his career with Al Nassr in January after signing a free agent contract with the club, shared his joy on Instagram. The five-time winner of the Champions League shared the following with his 556 million followers on Instagram: “Never stop believing right up until the very end! Vamos!”.
Despite the ꜰᴀᴄᴛ that Ronaldo was unable to score against the worst club in the league, CR7 has adjusted well to his new life in Saudi Arabia and is performing exceptionally well. The Portuguese superstar, who is 38 years old, has made six appearances in the Saudi Pro League. In those games, he has scored eight goals and supplied two assists. With 13 goals scored so far, Talisca is the player for Al Nassr who leads the team in goal scoring at the present.
Because of his outstanding play thus far in Saudi Arabia, Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the Saudi Pro League Player of the Month for the month of February. CR7 insisted that he is “glad” with this honor and its responsibilities. Ronaldo continued, “I certainly hope that this is only the first of many! I am honored to have been chosen to serve on this team.”
In the Saudi Pro League, Al Nassr has won four games in a row after claiming a 3-1 victory over Al Batin. This is the team’s fourth straight victory. The team captained by Cristiano Ronaldo is now in first place. With 11 games still to play in the season, Al Ittihad has 2 points.
Both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo played for their respective clubs, Barcelona and Real Madrid, during the 2009–2018 seasons of La Liga and the Champions League. Football fans have been debating for a long time which superstar player can be considered the “GOAT” (greatest of all time) in the sport.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the player with the most goals in the history of his national career. He has won the Champions League five times, which is one more than Lionel Messi. Ronaldo is also the man with the most titles. Messi, on the other hand, has twice as many Ballon d’Or victories than Ronaldo. Yet after Messi led Argentina to victory as captain in the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar, the question of who is superior appears to have been answered.
