THE BIGGER PICTURE? The draw is a blow to Al-Nassr's titles hopes, as they are now two points behind Saudi Pro League leaders Al-Ittihad, who have a game in hand. It's also the second match in a row where Ronaldo has shown his frustration. The Portugal international went berserk after being denied a penalty last time out against Al-Raed.
WHAT NEXT? Al-Nassr are back in action on Tuesday, May 16, against Al-Ta'ee in the Saudi Pro League.
