Ronaldo Al Nassr Asian Champions League last 16 Persepolis draw

Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr advance to Asian Champions League knockout stages after 0-0 draw, with Ronaldo subbed off due to injury.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr team secured their place in the knockout stages of the Asian Champions League with a 0-0 draw against Persepolis in Riyadh. Despite playing most of the match with 10 men, Nassr only needed a point to advance to the last 16 and achieved just that. However, celebrations were dampened by Ronaldo's substitution due to a collision with the Persepolis goalkeeper. The match saw some controversial moments, including a denied penalty claim for Nassr and a red card for Ali Lajami. Persepolis also had a goal disallowed, and Ronaldo missed a chance to score. The Nassr captain's injury and subsequent substitution added to the drama of the game. Moving forward, Nassr will face Al Hilal in a top-of-the-table clash in the Saudi Pro League. In other group matches, Al Duhail secured their first win of the campaign, while Al Ittihad bounced back from defeat with a 2-1 win. The group stage of the tournament is set to continue until mid-December, with the top teams advancing to the knockout rounds in February.
