AFC Champions League: Ronaldo bags late winner as Al Nassr wins RO16 first-leg against Al Fayha

Cristiano Ronaldo emerged as the hero for Al Nassr, netting a decisive goal in the 81st minute to secure a 1-0 victory over Al Fayha in the first leg of their AFC Champions League Round of 16 clash at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium on Thursday. Despite Al Nassr’s control of the game from the outset, the combined talents of Ronaldo, Talisca, and Otavio struggled to break through Al Fayha’s stalwart defense, which effectively neutralized their efforts in the final third.

The match’s first significant opportunity arose just before the first half concluded, with Ronaldo receiving a cross from the left and attempting a turn-and-shoot, only to be denied by an outstanding save from Vladimir Stojkovic.
