Cristiano Ronaldo maintained his impressive goal-scoring form, netting a remarkable goal as Al-Nassr secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over Al Raed in the Saudi Pro League.

Ronaldo, who currently tops the goal-scoring charts in the Saudi top flight, delivered a decisive blow to seal Al-Nassr's win on the road, as his side maintained their steady ascent on the league log.

The 38-year-old faced staunch resistance from the home defence, but it was his teammate, Sadio Mane, who broke the deadlock with a sensational strike from outside the box.

Mane's goal opened the floodgates for Al-Nassr, and four minutes into the second half, Anderson Talisca, making his return from injury, unleashed a stunning shot to extend Luis Castro's side's lead.

Ronaldo eventually found the back of the net, scoring 12 minutes before stoppage time after a setup by Talisca.

With some work still to be done, the former Real Madrid star nutmegged his marker before opting to unleash an unstoppable shot from inside the box, putting the icing on the cake.

Here is the video:

According to Arab News, the former Real Madrid ace's goal against Al Raed takes his season tally to seven goals in just five matches, scoring in four consecutive Saudi League games for Al-Nassr.

What's next for Ronaldo?

Up next for Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates is an away tie in the AFC Champions League, the equivalent of Europe's premier club competition, against Iranian giants Persepolis on September 19.
