Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal of the season on Monday as Al-Nassr beat Monastir 4-1 in the Arab Club Champions Cup.
The Saudi Pro League outfit endured a disappointing goalless draw in their first game against Al-Shabab but made a great comeback this week.
They looked in control after Talisca struck in the 42nd minute but an unfortunate own-goal from Ali Lajami restored parity after the interval.
The game looked to be heading for another stalemate before Ronaldo popped up with a brilliant header to put his side in front.
Al-Nassr netted two more late goals through Abdulelah Al-Amri and Abdulaziz Saud Al Elewai as they sealed an emphatic 4-1 victory.
The 38-year-old joined the Saudi club in January after mutually terminating his contract with Manchester United.
He has made 21 appearances across all competitions, bagging 15 goals and two assists.
Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Arabia has paved the way for other top players to move to the Middle East.
N’Golo Kante, Ruben Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are among the other players to head to Saudi Arabia this summer.
Jordan Henderson also left the Premier League giants to join Al-Ettifaq in the summer transfer window.
