Cristiano Ronaldo netted a second-half hat-trick as Al Nassr enjoyed a dominant 5-1 victory over Al-Tai in the Saudi Pro League.

Otavio and Abdulrahman Ghareeb had already put Luis Castro’s side on course for all three points before the break, with the 39-year-old putting the result beyond doubt after the interval.

Al-Tai had equalised in the 22nd minute but momentum swung in the hosts’ favour after goalscorer Virgil Misidjan was shown a red card.

Ronaldo’s first came off a corner. The Portugal captain met the delivery with a driven half-volley which found the bottom right-hand corner.

His second came not long after in the 67th minute when he reacted quickest in the area to smash home from close-range before he rose higher than his marker to nod in his third.
