FANS were left baffled after Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated a goal “the keeper didn’t even see.”
That’s after the pitch was engulfed in SMOKE during Al-Nassr’s showdown with rivals Al-Ahli.

He has been a smash hit in the Middle East with 27 goals in just 32 outings.
And Ronnie added two more strikes to his tally on Friday during Al-Nassr’s 4-3 win over Al-Ahli.
Mane picked up the ball before driving forward and laying it to Ronaldo.
The goalmouth in front of the Portugal legend was barely visible due to flares let off by supporters.
But that didn’t stop Ronnie as he lined up the shot before firing home past Edouard Mendy.
It sparked wild celebrations among home fans, as well as Ronaldo and his teammates.
But viewers watching from home were left baffled by the strike, with many reckoning ex-Chelsea stopper Mendy never even saw the goal coming due to the smoke.
One said: “Keeper didn’t even see that.”
Another declared: “Using to obscure the GK vision so that Ronaldo scores is the biggest form of scripting I’ve ever seen.”
One noted: “He scored without knowing where the goal was… different class.”
Another added: “Man’s so muscle memory trained, know where the far post is by default.”
Ronaldo’s second goal of the night came in the 52nd minute, with Brazilian ace Talisca also netting a brace.
But just moments after scoring his first goal, Ronnie missed an absolute sitter.
The striker had an open goal to aim at as he pounced onto a cross.
Even the smoke from the flares had even lifted by that stage.
However, Ronnie still somehow managed to smash his effort against the crossbar, much to the disbelief of Al-Nassr fans and players.
