Al Nassr’s Saudi Pro League title hopes took a major hit after their 1-1 draw at home against Al Khaleej. Ronaldo's side were considered the favourites throughout the game but failed to push on for the winner. The draw frustrated the five-time Balon d’Or winner as it put them five points behind table toppers Al Ittihad and an angry Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to push a fan away who was trying to take a selfie.
The match saw Al Nassr fall behind early in the fourth minute as Fabio Martins put Al Khaleej ahead. Al Nassr equalized in the 17th minute through an Alvaro Gonzalez goal. Ronaldo and Talisca kept pushing for the winner but the Al Khaleej goalkeeper made some excellent saves to keep the score at 1-1.
After the disappointing draw, Ronaldo started walking towards the tunnel and the opponent players and staff members mobbed the Portuguese. The 38-year-old exchanged shirts with an opponent player while a member of Al Khaleej support staff rushed to take a selfie with the superstar, who initially ignored him but kept insisting. The Al Nassr captain appeared to push him away and entered the dressing room while the staff member respected the former Man United forward's decision and walked away.

Al-Nassr will be back in action on Tuesday night, against Al-Ta'ee in the Saudi Pro League. Cristiano Ronaldo’s time in Saudi Arabia has not gone how he expected it to as Al Nassr are unlikely to win any trophy this season. Since he joined in January, the ex-Manchester United star has been excellent with 12 goals and two assists in the Saudi Pro League and is fourth in the top goal scorers chart.
