WATCH: Frustrated Cristiano Ronaldo attempts to punch the ball during 1-0 win over Al Khaleel

Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo’s return after his suspension proved disappointing for the Portuguese great as he was spotted punching the ball in frustration against Al Khaleel in the Saudi Pro League. Ronaldo failed to get on the score sheet but Al Nassr still pulled through with a 1-0 victory on the back of former Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte’s 68th-minute header.

Unlike Ronaldo, who was presented with three massive chances but failed to find the back of the net. Against Al Khaleel, CR7 topped the charts with a 1.27 xG (expected goals), five shots, three shots on target and nine touches in the area without reward.

These missed opportunities eventually bottled up for the former Real Madrid star who lost his cool and tried to punch the ball in frustration. Ronaldo was attempting a cross which an Al Khaleel defender cleared away. A frustrated CR7 tried to punch away the ball as it bounced out.
