Is Cristiano Ronaldo playing against Al Raed?

Ronaldo missed Al Nassr’s last league game as late penalties for both sides wrapped up a wild 4-4 draw at home to Al Hazm on February 29.

Ronaldo was forced to sit out due to a suspension from the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, relating to his actions towards Al Shabab fans in the first half of the league game on February 25, after being subjected to chants of “Messi, Messi” before reacting.

After the final whistle, Ronaldo went over to a section of the Al Shabab fans and was seen cupping his ear before rapidly moving his hand back and forth in front of his pelvis.

After serving a one-game ban, Ronaldo is now back in the squad to face Al Raed.
