In a video circulating on X (formerly known as Twitter), the 28-year-old, who was on the substitute's bench, struggled to contain his emotions.

Otavio appears scared before Ronaldo's penalty

In anticipation of the worst outcome had Ronaldo missed the penalty, Otavio attempted to shield himself from the moment by using the team's bib to cover his face.

However, his apprehension turned to jubilation as Cristiano expertly found the back of the net from the spot, deceiving the goalkeeper with a skillful finish, MARCA reports.

Here is the video:

Ronaldo's goal in the 87th minute ultimately restored Al-Nassr's lead, securing a crucial 2-1 victory for the Knights of Najd at the Prince Abdul Aziz bin Musa'ed Stadium.

What's next for Otavio and Al-Nassr?

Otavio surely hopes to avoid such nerve-wracking moments when his team takes on Tajikistan's Istiklol Dushanbe in the AFC Champions League match scheduled for Monday, October 2nd.

Ronaldo inspires Al-Nassr to vital win at Al-Tai

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Cristiano Ronaldo made a significant impact, scoring and providing an assist, as Al-Nassr extended their winning streak with a 2-1 triumph over Al Tai.

Al-Nassr, who had already secured five consecutive victories in the Saudi Pro League before taking on Al Tai, leaned on the exceptional performance of their star player to conquer the Knight of The North at the Prince Abdul Aziz bin Musa'ed Stadium on Friday evening.

This goal brings Ronaldo's total tally to 10 goals in as many games played this season.
