Ronaldo and his teammates at Al Nassr are playing at an “unbelievable” density, with this team taking the field to play an official match every three days.
On August 12, Ronaldo scored a double to help Al Nassr win the Arab regional club championship. This is CR7’s first title with representatives of Saudi Arabia. Immediately after this title, the Portuguese superstar and his teammates will have to turn their focus to the Saudi Arabia National Championship, which will kick off tonight and tomorrow morning (August 15).
In round 1, Al Nassr will have an away match against Al Ettifaq at 1:00 a.m. tomorrow morning (August 15) Vietnam time. After the above match, Al Nassr will have to play continuously in the Saudi Arabia National Championship on August 19, August 26, August 30 and September 3. Interspersed between matches in the national championship will be Ronaldo’s Asian Cup debut at Al Nassr when the Riyadh capital team meets one of two opponents Shabab Al Ahli (UAE) or Al Wehdat (Jordan).
Since the start of pre-season friendly matches on July 11, Al Nassr has played continuously with a frequency of 1 match every 3 days until today (August 14). After only about 33 days, the Saudi Arabia team has played 12 matches. Ronaldo appeared in most of these matches and there were only a few matches where the Portuguese superstar was replaced midway. By September 3, Al Nassr will have gone through an “unbelievable” playing time, appearing in 17 matches in just 54 days.
In recent matches, Ronaldo is maintaining quite good scoring form. The 38-year-old player scored 6 goals in the last 5 matches and won the title of top scorer of the Arab regional club tournament.
