How many goals did Cristiano Ronaldo score at Al Nassr in 2023/24 season? CR7 stats in Saudi Arabia

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 2023/24 season in Saudi Arabia — his first full campaign with Al Nassr — came to an end in tears as Al Nassr were beaten on penalties in the Kings Cup final.

Ronaldo joined Al Nassr on the richest contract in football history in January 2023, but despite scoring 14 goals in 19 matches across all competitions, he could not lift any silverware by the time the season ended in May.

Al Nassr finished in second place in the Saudi Pro League, also falling in the semifinals of the Saudi Super Cup as well as in the last four of the King Cup. Individually, Ronaldo did finish in fifth place in the Saudi Pro League Golden Boot race, despite having a mountain to climb after joining in midseason.

Things did not go significantly better for Al Nassr in 2023/24 as they again finished second in the league, this time to the unbeaten Al Hilal. They were also eliminated from the AFC Champions League at the quarterfinal stage. However, they won the Arab Club Champions Cup and reached the final of the King’s Cup of Champions, but lost the latter on penalties.

‘CR7’ started strongly with a hat-trick in just his second Saudi Pro League match of the 2023/24 campaign, and The Sporting News has tracking his goals and stats in his second campaign ever since. He ended up setting a new benchmark for Saudi Arabian league football.
