Al Taee vs Al Nassr Live Score: Al Nassr have continued their winning run with a 2-1 victory over Al Taee. Cristiano Ronaldo and his men were not at their fluent best, but have managed to grind out a crucial away victory. Anderson Talisca gave the visitors the lead, while Virgil Misidjan restored parity ten minutes from time. But it is Cristiano Ronaldo who scored from the spot to earn his team all three points in the match.
Al Nassr, playing against a side placed seven spots below it, started the match on the offensive, with a quartet having ample European football experience.
Otavio, Sadio Mane and Anderson Talisca kept the ball progression consistent up the pitch while Ronaldo spearheaded the attack.
However, the 38-year-old was far from his best in terms of finishing, failing to convert at least three chances in the game while Victor Braga, the goalkeeper of Al Ta’ee made his presence known with clinical reflex saves.
The deadlock, however, ended with a quick counter-attack by Al Nassr, wherein Ronaldo set up Talisca on his right, who struck past Braga to help his side take the lead in the 32d minute.
Al Ta’ee shifted gears after the restart but found the visitor’s defence, manned by Aymeric Laporte, a former treble winner with Manchester City.
The compact low-block of Al Nassr, with Alex Telles making wing-runs made the contest look an uphill task for the host until the 79th minute
