‘Ronaldo absent’ Alnasr suffers 1-2 reverse at Etihad Park…’Liverpool derby’ Henderson, Gerrard the only laughing matter

Former Liverpool teammates Sadio Mane (Al-Nasr) and Jordan Henderson (Al-Ettifaq) traveled to Saudi Arabia to face off against each other in the English Premier League (EPL). While Mane scored on his debut, Al Nasr came from behind to take advantage of Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence.

Al Nasr fell 1-2 to Al Etihad in the first leg of the 2023-2024 season at Prince Muhammad Bin Fahd Stadium in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, on Friday.

Al Nasr were without their star man Ronaldo, who led them to the Arab Club Champions Cup title. The team rested him after he complained of pain following a collision with a player in the final against Al Hilal.

Alnasr put Mane up front to fill Ronaldo’s void. The Frenchman rattled the net with a right-footed header from a cross from the right just four minutes into the match.

However, Alnasr conceded back-to-back goals to Robin Quayson and Mousa Dembele in the second and eighth minutes of the second half, respectively.바카라사이트

The game was billed as the “Liverpool Derby,” and the hype surrounding it was palpable. Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard led the Reds to victory in his official debut at Etihad Park. Henderson, who succeeded Gerrard as Liverpool captain, also made his Saudi debut with a win.
