Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr bag three injury-time goals in comeback win vs Al-Batin

Cristiano Ronaldo and Al-Nassr enjoyed a comeback victory to remember on Friday evening, to reestablish the club’s advantage atop the Saudi Pro League.

Ronaldo and co. marked their return to action a short time ago.

Fresh off a trio of successive victories, Al-Nassr welcomed Al-Batin to Mrsool Park, hopeful of staving off the pressure of title challengers Al-Ittihad atop the Saudi Arabian top-flight.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what Rudi Garcia’s troops went on to do.

It was actually visitors Al-Batin who opened the scoring in the clash, courtesy of Renzo Lopez’s finish just beyond the 15-minute mark.

And, all the way through the 92nd-minute, this is how the scoreline remained.

Upon the fourth official shocking all in attendance in indicating a full 12 minutes of injury time, though, Al-Nassr were provided with a timely boost.

And, safe to say, this is one which the hosts went on to take full advantage of.

First, three minutes into time added on, the score was levelled, when Abdulrahman Ghareeb broke free at the back post to slot home in style:

Then, in the very last minute of the indicated twelve, the comeback was complete, as the ball dropped to Mohammed Al Fatil, who made no mistake in driving beyond the helpless Martin Campana:

And yet, there was still time for the hosts to add a third, as Mohammed Maran rounded out a ruthless counter-attack to send Al-Nassr two points clear at the summit of the Saudi Pro League:
