Al Nassr fixtures schedule 2023-2024: When does Cristiano Ronaldo play in Saudi Pro League, AFC Champions League

The 2023/24 Saudi Pro League season continues to attract major international attention following the wave of transfer signings to the country during the summer of 2023.

The Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired focus on Al Nassr that started in January 2023 will be stepped up even more as Ronaldo is now joined by stars like Sadio Mane, Marcelo Brozovic, Seko Fofana, and Alex Telles, who have already helped to deliver a first piece of silverware with the Arab Club Champions Cup.

But stars have flocked to other Saudi Arabian teams, too. Following a move by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) to bring four of the league’s biggest clubs under their financial control, the transfers have rolled in across the board.

The increase in star names alongside Ronaldo, including his former Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema (Al Ittihad), World Cup winner N’Golo Kante (Al Ittihad) and Brazil star Neymar (Al Hilal), will bring more eyes on the league for the new campaign.

For those tuning in for Ronaldo, The Sporting News details his schedule with Al Nassr for the coming season.

Is Al Nassr playing in the Asian Champions League?

Despite losing out to Al Ittihad in the 2022/23 Saudi Pro League title race by just five points, their second-place finish secured Al Nassr a place in Asia’s AFC Champions League playoffs for the upcoming season.

Ronaldo and Co. sealed a 4-2 win over UAE side Shabab Al-Ahli in the playoff round to book a group-stage place, where they were paired with Persepolis (Iran), Al-Duhail (Qatar) and FC Istiklol (Tajikstan), in Group E. Al Nassr qualified as winners of the group, but their opponents in the next round are not yet known.

Al Nassr reached the semifinals of the competition in 2021/22, but failed to qualify for it in 2022/23, with their best run in the tournament coming as runners-up to South Korea’s Seongnam FC in 1995.
