Cristiano Ronaldo was back on the scoresheet with the opening goal in Al Nassra's 4-0 win over Al Raed in the Saudi Pro League on Friday.

The Portuguese star struck four minutes after Sultan Al-Ghannam's cross from the right and headed in the corner from close range.

Al Nassr extended his lead ten minutes into the second half through Abdulrahman Ghareeb before Mohammed Maran and Abdulmajeed Al-Sulaiheem scored in the final minutes to settle the deadlock.

Ronaldo, 38, has failed to score in his last three games as Al Nassr lost vital points in the title race and was eliminated from the Copa del Rey in the semifinals.

Despite Friday's win, Al Nassr remains within three points of leaders Al Ittihad and has played a game more. Al Nassr has five league games left this season.
