Senegal forward, Sadio Mane has been a menace for Abha defenders in the Saudi Pro League game following his return to the Al Nassr team on Friday.

However, the highlight of the game was in the second-half when he left an Abha defender struggling to get on his feet with his lovely footwork.

In a video shared on social media, Mane is seen twisting and turning Saleh Al Qumayzi in the box.

Meanwhile, the host opened the scoring early in the game through Octavio, who finished off a brilliant Al Nassr move which included Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo Brozorvic.

Al Nassr doubled their lead halfway through the first-half after Mane delivered a perfect assist to Talisca.

The visitors pulled one back from the spot after Alex Telles conceded a penalty, which was converted by Tunisian midfielder Saad Abdellah Bguir.

Cameroonian winger Karl Toko Ekambi scored a late belter to secure a draw a point for the visitors.

Mane has been in fine form since moving to Saudi Arabia, scoring six goals and providing two assist in nine league games, as reported by Transfermarkt.
