Cristiano Ronaldo fired Al Nassr ahead against Al Ahli in bizarre circumstances in their Saudi Pro League clash on Friday night.

The 38-year-old striker took advantage of Edouard Mendy seemingly being blinded by a yellow smoke bomb to open the scoring in the early stages.

The match took place at the KSU Stadium, with Al Nassr aiming to leapfrog their rivals and secure fifth place in the league standings.


The lineup featured top-notch players from both sides, making it a high-profile clash following Saudi Arabia’s summer transfer spree.

Only four minutes into the game, Cristiano Ronaldo made his mark by receiving a pass from Sadio Mane during a counter-attack and confidently slotting the ball past Mendy with a low left-footed strike.

However, the goal came under unusual circumstances as a cloud of yellow smoke engulfed the area behind Mendy’s goal, potentially obstructing his vision.


Mendy, the former Chelsea goalkeeper managed to get a hand on Ronaldo’s shot but couldn’t prevent it from finding the back of the net, raising questions about whether the smoke played a role in his inability to make a clear save.

This unexpected turn of events added an element of intrigue to the match, leaving fans and pundits speculating about the impact of the smoke on Mendy’s goalkeeping abilities and whether it influenced the outcome of the game.

As the Saudi Pro League continues to deliver unexpected moments and thrilling encounters, Ronaldo’s goal against Al Ahli will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the more unusual and controversial moments in the season.
