Al Nassr vs Al Feiha live score, result, updates, highlights as Cristiano Ronaldo starts AFC Champions League second leg

Al Nassr take a 1-0 lead over Al Feiha into the second leg of their AFC Champions League Round of 16 tie.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game in the first fixture a week ago and, having helped his team to a 2-1 Saudi Pro League victory last weekend, he should be full of confidence heading into this contest in Riyadh.

Al Nassr are bidding to win the AFC Champions League for the first time in their history, and with their Saudi opponents having won just five of 20 league games all season, they are firm favourites to progress to the quarterfinals.

That said, an early goal from the visitors would certainly make for an intriguing contest, and Al Nassr have conceded in all but one of their competitive matches since the end of November last year.

The Sporting News will be following the Al Nassr vs. Al Feiha match live, providing score updates, commentary, and highlights as they happen.
