Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo is claimed to be greater than Lionel Messi after providing a brilliant assist for his teammate.
Ronaldo provided two assists when Al Nassr defeated Al Taawoun 2-1 in the Saudi Pro League continued match at the King Saud University Stadium, Friday (17/2) evening local time.
Ronaldo’s first assist invites admiration from netizens. The collector of five Ballon d’Or titles sent a measurable pass that spoiled Abdulrahman Ghareeb to score.
Ronaldo provided a pass from his own playing area which was between two Al Taawoun defenders. Ghareeb did not waste the bait to bring Al Nassr 1-0 up.
Reporting to the Daily Star, flattery also came from netizens. Some even say that Messi cannot provide assists like Ronaldo did in the Al Nassr vs Al Taawoun match.
“Call me crazy but he is a better playmaker than Messi,” wrote one fan.
“This is bigger than what Messi did in all the World Cup matches. My honest opinion,” said another netizen.
Two assists in the match against Al Taawoun showed that Ronaldo had become more and more at Al Nassr. Prior to this, the former Manchester United player scored four goals when Al Nassr destroyed Al Wehda 4-0.
This victory put Ronaldo and his friends at the top of the Saudi Pro League standings by collecting 40 points from 17 matches.
