Ronaldo’s absence hurts Al-Nassr in AFC Champions League

Al-Nassr’s star player Cristiano Ronaldo will not play in their upcoming AFC Champions League match against Istiklol, a club from Tajikistan, the club confirmed to GOAL. The Portuguese forward has been in great shape this season (2023–24), but the club management has decided to rest him. So far, the superstar has scored 26 goals in 24 games for his team.

At age 38, Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing down. He is always in the news because people keep comparing him to Lionel Messi, an Argentine football player. He wants to win big awards for his Saudi club, which paid him a lot of money to play. During this season, Ronaldo scored three goals in continental competitions. However, he won’t be able to add to that total when Al-Nassr plays Istiklol because the management chose to rest him.

Ronaldo’s team is in first place in Group E with 13 points and hasn’t lost in five games, which has helped them secure a spot in the round of 16. GOAL says that Ronaldo doesn’t need to play because they are in such good shape. He will be able to recover during the break fully. The star was recently seen with tape on during Al-Nassr’s game against Al-Hilal.

Since the club’s captain has had a mild neck injury, Al-Nassr Manager Luis Castro has decided to rest him. This will give the Portuguese forward time to heal before Friday’s game against Al-Riyadh. Real Madrid lost 3-0 to Al-Hilal in the last game, and fans at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh made fun of the star player afterward. “Messi” was chanted as he walked back to the pavilion after the game. Even so, he still managed to impress. The football star kept his cool by giving the rowdy fans “flying kisses” in response.
