Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr Suffers 5-0 Defeat to Celta Vigo in Pre-Season Friendly, Debut for Marcelo Brozovic



Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr ,Debut for Marcelo Brozovic

In a surprising turn of events, Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr faced a crushing 5-0 defeat in their first pre-season friendly this summer against Celta Vigo on Monday night. Ronaldo played 45 minutes of the match, while Marcelo Brozovic made his debut for the Saudi Pro League side. The first half ended in a goalless draw, but Celta Vigo dominated the game after the break in Faro.

Gael Alonso opened the scoring just before the hour mark, followed by braces from Miguel Rodriguez and Jorgen Strand Larsen, sealing a resounding victory for Celta Vigo. Brozovic, who recently made the move from Inter Milan, played for 54 minutes before being substituted off the field, just before Celta Vigo's onslaught.

During the first half, Ronaldo missed a golden opportunity to give Al-Nassr the lead, and it proved to be a costly miss for his team. Al-Nassr coach Luis Castro now faces the challenge of preparing his team for upcoming friendlies against Benfica, PSG, and Inter Milan, all formidable opponents with significant Champions League pedigree.

While Celta Vigo, who finished 13th in LaLiga last season, may have been considered a relatively easier opponent, they ultimately humiliated Al-Nassr. Pre-season friendlies provide teams with an opportunity to assess their strengths and weaknesses before the competitive matches begin. It is also a chance to evaluate new players and their potential impact on the team's performance and results.

However, Al-Nassr will have to work with their existing squad for the upcoming Saudi Pro League season. FIFA has imposed a ban on the club from registering new players due to an ongoing dispute with Leicester City. Despite this setback, Al-Nassr will need to regroup and focus on maximizing their current resources to achieve success in the upcoming season.
