Watch Cristiano Ronaldo almost score a goal for Al Nassr against Al-Batin thanks to some hilarious goalkeeping.
Ronaldo has scored some great goals over the years where he has given the keeper absolutely no chance, but in this instance, the Al-Batin keeper did not cover himself in glory as he attempted to stop the five-time Ballon D’or winner getting past him.
A long ball over the top was misjudged by the Al-Batin defence and the Portuguese machine found himself in on goal.
He entered the penalty area and Al-Batin keeper Martin Campana completely misjudged what Ronaldo was going to do, deciding to jump on the edge of the box as if the 38-year old was going to chip him.

Ronaldo simply moved past the stranded keeper and looked destined to score, but full-back Abdullah Al-Yousef did superbly to stop Ronaldo’s shot from crossing the line.
Hopefully, the forward won’t feel too disappointed with his denied strike, as Al Nassr went on to win 3-1 to retain their place at the top of the Saudi Pro League.
