Al Hilal Club, recently crowned champions of the Saudi Pro League, delivered an electrifying performance in a 1-1 draw with Al Nassr FC.

This highly anticipated Riyadh derby featured two of the league’s strongest teams. The match began explosively in the first minute. Otávio capitalized on a superb pass from Ronaldo, launching a powerful shot to give Al Nassr a 1-0 lead.

Despite numerous missed opportunities by both sides, Al Nassr appeared poised to secure all three points. However, in a dramatic turn of events, Al Hilal, maintaining their unbeaten streak, equalized in the final moments. Aleksandar Mitrović converted a penalty, concluding the match in a thrilling 1-1 draw.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mané missed several clear chances to extend Al Nassr’s lead. Furthermore, Aleksandar Mitrović and Sergej Milinković-Savić also squandered good opportunities for Al Hilal.

Although Al Hilal started slowly, they mounted a strong comeback in the second half, with Al Nassr’s goalkeeper making several crucial saves. In the final minutes of added time, Sadio Mané fouled Abdulhamid inside the penalty box, and Mitrović easily converted the penalty to level the game.

Al Hilal has 90 points in the table, while second-place Al Nassr has 78 points. Only two rounds of games remain in the Saudi Pro League.
