Cristiano Ronaldo has still never scored at Mrsool Park after drawing a blank for Al Nassr in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Abha in the quarter-finals of the King Cup.

Al Nassr were comfortable winners without a scoring contribution from their big-name star.

Strikes from Sami Al-Najei, Abdullah Al-Khaibari and Mohammed Maran were enough to see Al Nassr cruise into the semi-finals of a tournament they have not won since 1990.

But Ronaldo was clearly desperate to score in front of his home supporters and he cut a frustrated figure for much of the game.

Ronaldo was shown a yellow card for an angry reaction to the referee after the half-time whistle had halted an Al Nassr attack.

The 38-year-old later struggled to hide his frustration after being substituted off in the 87th minute.

This was the second Al Nassr game in a row that had witnessed Ronaldo losing his temper.

Ronaldo stormed off the field in a huff following a 1-0 loss to Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League on Friday.

The 38-year-old angrily booted a water bottle on his walk back to the locker rooms after Al-Ittihad fans taunted him by chanting the name of Lionel Messi .
