  • Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing for Al-Nassr's next game against Ai-Ain in the Champions League
  • The Portuguese superstar made fans laugh with his recent antics in training for the Al-Ain clash
  • The Saudi Pro League side will have to overcome a one-goal deficit to progress to the semi-finals

Cristiano Ronaldo is in good spirits ahead of Al-Nassr’s next game.

The Portuguese superstar will be hoping to lead his side to victory when they take on Al-Ain in the AFC Champions League.

With the UAE Pro League side leading the tie 1-0 after the first leg, pressure is on Ronaldo’s team, but they aren’t showing it.

CR7 was seen having a good time during training for the game, with one particular moment catching the eye of fans.

The Al-Nassr captain was spotted kicking around the ball in training, when he blasted it into the air.

Ronaldo then had his hands in his head as he was frightened the ball was going to hit one of his teammates.

Al-Nassr need to overturn deficit

Ronaldo’s side will go into their game against Al-Ain needing to overturn a one-goal deficit.

Al-Ain won the previous game 1-0 and are looking to frustrate the Saudi side once more.

The team from the UAE, managed by Hernan Crespo, believe they can cause another upset.

As reported by The National, Al-Ain defender, Erik, talked about how they could replicate their success in the first game.

"We know this is a different game, but it’s the same as we did in the first match. If you make it simple, but with doing everything very good, this is the secret. If you go with aggression, keep the ball, and try to play football, I think we can win there," he said.

The two sides will meet in the first quarter-final of the Champions League, with each looking to become the first team to book a semi-final spot.

Ronaldo draws a blank against Al Raed

Sports Brief previously reported how Al-Nassr suffered a 3-1 defeat against Al-Raed at home.

Al-Nassr captain, Ronaldo, could not inspire his team, hitting the post in each half of the game.

The Portuguese superstar also missed a free kick during the game, as his poor luck continued.
