Cristiano Ronaldo breaks the Saudi Pro league goal scoring record

May 28, 2024

Cristiano Ronaldo breaks Saudi Pro League goal scoring record. In Monday’s season-ending league match, Al-Nassr defeated Al-Ittihad 4-2 behind two braces from Ronaldo. With his two goals in the match, the 39-year-old broke the record for most goals scored in a Saudi Pro League season. With his 35th goal, he surpassed the 34-goal record held by Moroccan forward Abderrazak Hamdallah during the 2018–19 season.

During the 2023–24 Al-Nassr season, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United player also increased his own goal total to 50 in as many games. For the first time in its history, the squad also broke the league record with 100 goals.

After a season that broke records, the star attacker—who wants to stay in the Middle East past the age of forty—may receive an offer for a new contract, according to rumors in the media.

The player’s next action is scheduled for this Friday, when Al-Nassr takes on Saudi Arabia’s undefeated winners Al-Hilal in the King Cup final. Cristiano Ronaldo breaks Saudi Pro League goal scoring record
