Watch: Ridiculous Cristiano Ronaldo stat surfaces after latest hat-trick for Al-Nassr


An absolutely remarkable statistic surrounding the recent goalscoring exploits of Al-Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo has come to the fore late on Saturday evening.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo, of course, has taken his place front and centre in the headlines once more tonight.

This comes on the back of Al-Nassr’s Saudi Pro League meeting with Damac.

After seeing title rivals Al-Ittihad drop points against Al-Raed during the week, CR7 and co. were aware that a victory of their own would give rise to a renewed two-point lead atop the table.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what Al-Nassr marched on to.

After beginning to find his feet courtesy of five goals across his previous three appearances, that man Ronaldo, once more, proved himself the star of the show.

Amid an explosive first-half display, the Portuguese icon notched a fine hat-trick, en route to an eventual 3-0 result at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium.

As alluded to above, though, Ronaldo’s treble on Saturday did not only prove significant in guiding his side clear at the top of the Saudi Pro League.

In addition, it gave rise to a remarkable statistic, highlighting just how influential the 38-year-old has been in the attacking third over the last couple of weeks.

As per Eurosport, CR7 has had a direct hand in all of Al-Nassr’s last ten goals (eight goals, two assists).
