Cristiano Ronaldo continues tearing up Saudi Pro League with second hat trick in three games

Cristiano Ronaldo is doing what he does best: scoring goals. After playing five games in the Saudi Pro League CR7 is already in the top five goal scorers for the league.

Ronaldo scored goals six, seven and eight on Saturday with a first half hat trick during Al Nassr’s 3-0 victory vs. Damac.

Two league games ago Ronaldo scored all four goals in a 4-0 victory. This time around he only needed 44 minutes to score three.

The first goal came in the 18th minute from the penalty spot.

His second was the best of the bunch as he found the bottom left corner with a low blast from outside the box.

Abdulrahman Ghareeb deserves plenty of credit for the third goal as he single handedly sprung a counterattack for Al Nassr. His outside of the foot pass to switch fields was a thing of beauty. Ronaldo was there to clean up at the end.

The victory means Al Nassr stays atop the league table with a two-point gap on Al-Ittihad and three points in front of Al-Shabab.

Ronaldo now has eight Saudi Pro League goals. Brazilian forward Talisca leads the league with 13.
