Ronaldo had to receive a well-deserved penalty in the match against Al-Hilal for making a move that looked like he was attending a show wrestling match.
The situation took place in the 57th minute of the match between Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr. The ball was cleared and Ronaldo disputed with midfielder Gustavo Cuellar on the home side.
In this situation, Ronaldo was defeated and was stopped by a player on the Al-Hilal side. But CR7 seems to be inhibited with the previous period so it has produced an unusual action. He suddenly jumped on Cuellar’s collar and wrestled the player to the field as a WWE strike.
Referee Michael Oliver immediately penalized the Portuguese star. However, he decided not to show the red card, but only gave Ronaldo a yellow card warning.
In the decisive match to Al-Nassr’s championship ability in the Saudi Arabia national championship this season, Ronaldo performed extremely poorly. As a result, Al-Nassr lost 0-2 on Al-Hilal’s field and faced the risk of being far behind in the championship race this season. In fact, Al-Nassr also lost before losing to Al-Ittihad in a direct confrontation in March.
Currently, the distance between Al-Nassr to the top of Al-Ittihad is 3 points but they have played more than 1 match. In the Saudi Arabia national championship, only the winning team can win tickets to the continental playground, which is the Asian Champions League.
Al-Hilal’s two goals were scored by another player that MU fans are still familiar with, Odion Ighalo. However, this victory does not mean much to Al-Hilal when they are in 4th place and 7 points behind the leader of the group Al-Ittihad.
