Cristiano Ronaldo makes goalscoring point in Lionel Messi rivalry after Al Nassr victory

Abdulrahman Ghareeb gave the former Manchester United man&aposs side the lead just after the half hour mark and they doubled their advantage deep into first half stoppage time through Abdullah Al-Khaibari. Al Hazm sparked themselves into life shortly after the interval when Muhammed Badamosi pulled one back but all this did was spur Ronaldo&aposs side on.

Otavio made it 3-1 on 57 minutes before Ronaldo scored his historic goal on 68. Former Liverpool man Sadio Mane completed the rout ten minutes later to move Al Nassr to within four points of the new leaders Al Hilal.

After the match, the Portuguese icon took the opportunity to celebrate his landmark achievement on social media. In a post on his Instagram, Ronaldo wrote: “Another great team performance!

“We keep on improving. Let&aposs go Al Nassr. 850 goals and still counting,” he added accompanied with a wink emoji.

You would be forgiven for thinking the wink could have been aimed at his long-time rival Lionel Messi. Ronaldo&aposs goal at the weekend now puts him 32 ahead of the Argentinian World Cup winner who is on 818 career goals.

Messi is currently enjoying a career renaissance at David Beckham&aposs Inter Miami. Since joining the Fort Lauderdale-based franchise, the winger has scored 11 goals in as many games.

This saw Messi lead the Herons to Leagues Cup glory. Meanwhile, Miami have now moved off the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference but they remain eight points off the play-offs.
