Ronaldo’s Al Nassr is eliminated from the Saudi Super Cup.

Al Nassr, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, were eliminated from the Saudi Super Cup on Thursday after falling to Al Ittihad 3-1 in the semi-final in Riyadh.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner and 37-year-old Portugal international was effectively restrained by the Al Ittihad defense for the majority of the game despite having a few scoring opportunities.

The 67th-minute goal by Al Nassr’s Anderson Talisca was unable to erase Al Ittihad’s two first-half goals from Romarinho and Abderrazak Hamdallah.

Adding the third three minutes into stoppage time was Muhannad Al-Shanqeeti.

The Saudi Pro League’s Al Nassr will next visit Al Fateh on February 3.
