Senegalese forward, Sadio Mane is back to contributing goals for Al-Nassr after delivering an inch-perfect cross for Cristiano Ronaldo's opener against Al-Riyadh.

The Knights of Najd got off to a bright start as they looked to recover from the humiliating defeat to Al-Hilal a week earlier.

In a video shared on social media, the ex-Liverpool star took on his marker before sending in a floating cross into the box as the Portuguese star approached at the far end.

The Al-Nassr captain made no mistake in giving them the lead.

Later on in the first half, the Portuguese superstar went from scorer to provider, serving his compatriot, Otavio for Al-Nassr's second of the game.

Mane and Ronaldo, alongside Brazilian winger Anderson Talisca, have been the main stars for the Knights of Najd as they chase the league title.

Al-Nassr closed the gap on Al-Hilal to seven points with the 4-1 win.
