Al Nassr and Al Hilal, two prominent football clubs from Saudi Arabia, recently faced off in the final match of the Riyadh Season Cup in Riyadh. This match served as the last friendly game during the mid-season break before the teams resume regular competition. Both teams were in excellent form, with Al Nassr winning their past seven games and Al Hilal boasting a 21-game winning streak.
The encounter between Al Nassr and Al Hilal was highly anticipated, especially with the presence of star players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Aleksander Mitrovic. However, it was Al Hilal who emerged victorious, defeating Al Nassr 2-0. The Serbian footballer, Mitrovic, displayed an outstanding performance in their previous encounter, scoring twice.
Al Hilal dominated the match from the start, taking the lead in the 16th minute with a goal from Milinkovic-Savic. They extended their lead in the 30th minute when Salem Al-Dawsari found the back of the net with a stunning volley. Al Nassr made several attempts to score throughout the game, but their efforts were thwarted by the strong defense of Al Hilal.
The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the Al Nassr squad provided a boost to the team’s morale, but his efforts were not enough to secure a victory over their arch-rivals. Despite the loss, Al Nassr can take pride in their recent form, remaining unbeaten in their last seven games, scoring a total of 27 goals.
With the Riyadh Season Cup coming to a close, both teams will now focus on returning to regular competition in the Saudi Pro League. Al Hilal currently sits at the top of the table with 15 league games remaining, while Al Nassr aims to close the gap and continue their winning streak.
The victory for Al Hilal in the Riyadh Season Cup adds to their impressive record under the guidance of coach Luis Castro. The team’s performance, including the recent 6-0 victory against Inter Miami, indicates a strong foundation for their upcoming matches.
