Ronaldo's Al-Nassr earn easy win

Goals from Sami Al Najei, Abdullah Al Khaibari and Mohammed Maran rendered Abdulfattah Adam's strike a consolation as Al-Nassr sealed a semifinal spot.

The home side flew from the blocks right from the onset when Sami Al Najei find the back of the net after just nine seconds.

Ronaldo booked for extreme reaction
