Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s high-profile move to the Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in December 2022, he is playing for the first time in the country. In his debut, the 37-year-old scored two goals in the first half – the first one in penalties and the second one a perfect poacher’s finish from inside the box that eluded the PSG goalie and Ronaldo’s former teammate at Real Madrid Keylor Navas. 

Lionel Messi, however, opened the scoring with a goal in the third minute of the match, putting his side ahead to start with. The second PSG goal came from a corner that was headed in by the Brazilian center-back Marquinhos. The first half of the match ended with two goals for both sides. However, the French side are a man down after Juan Bernat got a red card in the 39th minute.
