Ohod vs Al Nassr score, result, highlights as Ronaldo-less visitors ...

25 Sep 2023

Al Nassr did not need captain Cristiano Ronaldo as they hammered Ohod 5-1 on their King Cup Round of 32 trip to Jeddah.

Luis Castro opted to leave Ronaldo back in Riyadh, with the Portuguese international focused on the Saudi Pro League clash with Al Ta'ee on September 29, and the visitors stormed into the next phase.

Sadio Mane's early penalty put the away side on track, before an Ohod's equaliser on the stroke of half time, as Castro's side were forced to react.

Seko Fofana's goal began to turn the tide, before late goals from Talisca, Ayman Yahya and Sami Al Najei, secured the win.
