Senegal forward Sadio Mane reached a new milestone after scoring in Al-Nassr's 8-0 demolishing of Abha in the Saudi Pro League on Tuesday night.

The former Liverpool forward alongside Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo were unstoppable as the Knight of Najd continued their devastating run of form in the Saudi Pro League.

Mane scored his tenth goal of the season after netting Al-Nassr's third of the night at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium, per Transfermarkt.

In a video shared on social media, Mane fired home with his weaker foot after Abha's goalkeeper failed to keep a Ronaldo strike.

Meanwhile, on a night littered with goals, Real Madrid legend, Ronaldo, netted his second successive hat-trick after scoring three times in the first half.

Abdulmajeed Al Sulaiheem wrapped up a dominant first-half performance with Al-Nassr's fifth.

After the break, Abdulrahman Al Ghareeb extended the lead before a brace from Abdulaziz Al-Aliwa completed the mauling for the visitors.

Despite the big win, Al Nassr remains twelve points behind leader Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League.

Ronaldo scores hat-trick against Abha

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Cristiano Ronaldo played a starring role for Al-Nassr for the umpteenth time as Al-Nassr completed a demolishing exercise against Pitso Mosimane's Abha Club.

Ronaldo, who has been on a purple patch of form lately, scored his second hat-trick in a space of three days as the Knights of Najd cruised to an impressive 8-0 victory at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium.

The 39-year-old got things underway with a stroke of luck, capitalising on a mistake by Romanian goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu to open the scoring from a free-kick after just 11 minutes.

Sports Brief also reported that Senegal's talismanic forward, Sadio Mane expressed delight following the Teranga Lions' back-to-back victories in the March international break.

The Al-Nassr star scored the only goal as Senegal defeated Benin in Amiens to wrap up their preparations for June's World Cup qualifiers.

The former Liverpool winger was also on target as the 2021 Africa champions thrashed Gabon.
