Al-Ittihad vs Al-Nassr summary: score, goals, highlights, Saudi Pro ...

Cristiano Ronaldo's first placed Al Nassr will face second placed Al Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League this evening and we're expecting fireworks.

The Tigers prove too much for Cristiano & Co.

It was a hot night at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, but the heat on the pitch was probably even higher. With important points in the title race between the two giants at stake, the match started out with a frantic pace.

Yet it's got to be said, that it was 2nd placed Al Ittihad who found their footing sooner than their opponents. Indeed, from quite early on Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, could be seen remonstrating with his teammates, as he encouraged them to calm down when in possession.

Unfortunately for the five-time world player of the year, his guidance and experience weren't enough to stop a classy counter attack by the Tigers, which ended with an even better finish from the man who appeared to be their talisman on the night, Romarihno

With the result, Al Ittihad now have a one point lead over Al Nassr - 47 and 46 respectively - as they head into the home stretch of the season. Needless to say, this campaign is going to go to the wire
