Cristiano Ronaldo was made fun of again by the rival team Al Hilal’s supporters during Al Nassr’s draw with them.

Scoring 56 goals and adding 15 assists in just 61 games for Al-Nassr, since moving to the Middle East, Ronaldo has enjoyed luxurious 18 months, according to All Football.

Over his long-running battle with Lionel Messi, a very often occurrence of his time in the Saudi Pro League (SPL) has been the taunts against him by his rival team’s fans.

Winning 13 Ballon d'Ors and numerous titles between them, both Ronaldo and Messi are the two standout stars of their generation. However, it has long been a contrasting issue in the game over who is better.

During Al Nassr's 1-1 draw with Al Hilal on Friday night, Cristiano Ronaldo was on the receiving end of more scornful chants.

As he assisted Otavio's goal within a minute which put his side ahead, the night had begun well for Ronaldo. However, it slowly turned into mocking against him with “Messi, Messi” chants from the rival team’s crowd.
