During the second goal, Ronaldo's positioning was under complication as the referee termed it offside, but the VAR confirmed the all-time top scorer is onside and rewarded the goal that helped Al-Nassr take three-points from the fixture and claim the top spot in the league. 

While the home crowd and Ronaldo's teammates were happy with the decision, Al-Taawoun's forward Tawamba expressed his dejection by refusing to shake hands with Ronaldo, who turned and presented his hand after the goal was allowed.
