Argentina’s DT Ramón Díaz has embittered Cristiano Ronaldo. This Tuesday, in a key duel for the Saudi Arabian League title, Al Hilal beat Al Nassr 2-0, where Croatian coach Dinko Jelicic made his debut. The Portuguese had a goal disallowed for being offside and booked after applying a catch to the Colombian Cuellar.
On the 25th round, Al-Hilal, thanks to goals by the Nigerian Odion Ighalo -both from penalties-, pushed Al Nassr away by three points -whose goalkeeper Agustín Rossi had replaced- and, with one game more, by the leader Al-Ittihad.
At MRSOOL Park in Riyadh, Jelicic’s new Al Nassr, replacing Frenchman Rudi García on the bench of Cristiano’s team, failed to beat Ramón Díaz’s.
Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t have his night in Riyadh. A goal was disallowed in the 77th minute for offside and before that, in the 57th minute, he was booked by English referee Michael Oliver for hanging around the neck of a rival player.
The Colombian Gustavo Cuellar He resumed at Al-Hilal after two games in a row without being called up.
After this result, Al Nassr’s title fight becomes more complicated by remaining three points and one game ahead of the leader, Al-Ittihad.
