Cristiano Ronaldo sent off for Al-Nassr in Saudi Super Cup defeat to Al-Hilal

The Al-Nassr forward, Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off during the 2-1 Saudi Super Cup semi-final defeat by Al-Hilal. Ronaldo was shown a straight red card on 86 minutes for elbowing his opponent, Ali Al Bulayhi, twice in the chest, who fell to the ground. This is Ronaldo’s first red card since he joined Al-Nassr in December 2022. Al-Nassr was trailing 2-0 after goals from Salem Al-Dawsari and Malcom, with former Liverpool forward Sadio Mane pulling one back in stoppage time.

Al-Hilal, the three-time winners, will play against Al-Ittihad in the final on Thursday. Al-Ittihad beat Al-Wehda 2-1 in their semi-final earlier on Monday thanks to goals from former Real Madrid captain Karim Benzema and Morocco forward Abderrazak Hamdallah.
