Cristiano Ronaldo rested for the AFC Champions League match between Al Duhail and Al Nassr

In AFC Champions League action on November 7, Al Nassr travel to Qatari side Al Duhail to take a break from the Saudi Pro League title race.

Despite trailing league leaders Al Hilal by four points, Luis Castro's side are on the verge of securing a Round of 16 place in the continental competition.

Al Nassr won the reverse fixture last month 4-3 thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's two late goals. Al Nassr sit atop the group stage standings with nine points from three games, so the 38-year-old Portuguese star will be rested today.

The Sporting News provides the latest lineup news, kickoff times and how to watch the game across the globe.

Al Duhail vs Al Nassr kicks off at what time?

Khalifa International Stadium will host this AFC Champions League match on Tuesday, November 7 at 9 p.m. The match will take place in Al Rayyan, Qatar, at local time.

Lineups & team news for Al Duhail vs Al Nassr

Philippe Coutinho, who joined Al Duhail on loan from Aston Villa in September, is perhaps the most notable player on Qatari side Al Duhail. In over 400 minutes since he arrived, he has scored one goal and assisted one.

Despite having no fresh injury issues, Al Duhail's head coach Christophe Galtier is likely to deploy the same lineup that faced Al Rayyan on Saturday. Kenyan international Michael Olunga has been moved up front to accommodate Qatari legend Almoez Ali, who has been playing superbly.

It is projected that Al Duhail will start with the following lineup (4-2-3-1): Zakaria (GK) - Kim, Semedo, Aymen, Al-Brake - Madibo, Boudiaf - Mohammed, Coutinho, Ali - Olunga.

Despite Cristiano Ronaldo being rested, manager Luis Castro confirmed that Al Nassr would not be able to win this match. As Ronaldo turns 38 this season, he has accumulated a heavy workload and Luis Castro decided to rest him. The Al Nassr lineup is likely to include Abdulrahman Ghareeb out wide and Sadio Mane as a central striker.

Aymeric Laporte and Ali Lajami are also expected to receive some rest for Al Nassr. Following his red card in the previous match, Anderson Talisca will return to Al Nassr's starting lineup as well.

The projected starting lineup for Al Nassr (4-2-3-1) is as follows: Alaqidi (GK) - Al-Ghanam, Alamri, Madu, Qassem - Brozovic, Al-Khaibari - Otavio, Talisca, Ghareeb - Mane.

The goal

GOOOALL! 85'! It's 4-3 for NAS, duh! A GOAL FOR OLUNGA!

I don't think I've seen such a thrilling match in a long time. It is a good move by Almoez Ali to wiggle away from a couple of Al Nassr players and create some space for himself. Olunga finds the far corner with a fine effort after he rolls the ball to the right. As a result of Al Duhail's goal, the deficit has once again been reduced to one goal

It is Almoez who attempts to get a shot away at goal as Al Duhail look to reduce the deficit. When his attempt is blocked, Coutinho gets the rebound and opens up his body to unleash a first-time shot. A considerable distance separates him from his target.

  • 01:07 OCTOBER 25, 2023

The 76th minute

Mane finds Ronaldo in space inside the box thanks to Ronaldo's pinpoint cross. It took Mane just the right amount of time to run to arrive and get his header away. A goalkick is awarded because the effort was not on target. Mane should have scored his second goal at that point.

GOAL

A 66' goal! NAS wins 3-2, of course! The goal is scored by ALI!

The deficit has now been reduced to one goal by Al Duhail. There seemed to be a lot of movement in the backline of Al Nassr. It takes a big deflection for Almoez Ali's shot to reach the net after Coutinho's shot is blocked. The situation completely caught Nawaf off guard.
