Cristiano Ronaldo had a priceless reaction to being booed by Al Ittihad fans

Cristiano Ronaldo was booed by Al Ittihad fans when lining up for Al Nassr in the top of the table clash.

Cristiano Ronaldo had an utterly priceless reaction to being booed by Al Ittihad fans as he captained Al Nassr for the top of the table clash.

First meets second in the Saudi Pro League's 'Superclasico', with Al Nassr just two points clear ahead of the huge game at King Abdullah Sports City.

It was an away fixture for Nassr and the players were greeted by a huge tifo which read 'Nightmare' as they walked out the tunnel of the 62,000 capacity stadium.

But unsurprisingly there was an especially vocal reaction for five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo, who was even met with loud chants in favour of rival Lionel Messi as he warmed up.

Then, when his face flashed up on the big screen, he was loudly booed by the home supporters. But by now, the 38-year-old is more than accustomed to the jeers from opposition fans.

The Portuguese superstar smirked and smiled as he realised he was being booed, before coldly nodding his head.

Ronaldo, who has eight goals in six Saudi Pro League games, was taunted with Messi chants by Ittihad fans after Nassr lost 3-1 in the Saudi Super Cup semi-final in January.

He looked sharp in his early moments in his latest meeting with Ittihad, wowing fans with a filthy nutmeg.

Interestingly, the referee for the game is a familiar face for Ronaldo and his long-time rival Messi. Mateu Lahoz is taking charge of a game in the Saudi Pro League for the third time.

Messi called for FIFA to drop the Spaniard after he brandished 18 yellow cards in Argentina's penalty shoot-out win over the Netherlands and he was then removed from the remaining four games.

Ronaldo also has a history with Lahoz, once grabbing his private parts and insulting him during an El Clasico fixture.
