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 .
