In the match against Al Fateh, Ronaldo scored an amazing hat-trick and also provided a fantastic back heel pass which turned into an assist and helped his team onto a 5-0 victory.

In the last Matchday of the month, Al Nassr was scheduled to face Al Sadab. The match started well for Luis Castro's side as Ronaldo scored a penalty in the opening minutes of the game.

He again went on to score with his head but it was disallowed, which took a toll on him because it was an inexplicable mistake by the referee. But he used it as a motivator and went onto score another penalty making it two goals for the night and a 4-0 victory for Al Nassr.

After his brace against Al Shabab, Ronaldo also become the player with the most number of goals ever in National Top flight Leagues as shown in the Cristiano Ronaldo News.
