Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 26th goal of the season as Al-Nassr moved into the quarter-finals of the Asian Champions League with a 3-0 aggregate win over Al-Fayha in an-all Saudi Arabian clash.

The Portuguese scored the only goal in the first leg and then found the net in Riyadh on Wednesday night with four minutes remaining of the second leg. 

Ronaldo seized on a goalkeeping blunder to seal the win, tapping the ball into an empty net after Vladimir Stojkovic failed to clear a long ball for Marcelo Brozovic and allowed the 39-year-old a easy finish.

Stojkovic was also at fault for Al-Nassr's opener, as Otavio headed a cross from Abdullah Al Khaibari through his legs to put the hosts ahead 17 minutes into the game.

Ronaldo narrowly missed adding a second when his 37th-minute header clipped the post, before sealing his side's win.
