But the five-time Ballon d'Or winner hit back as he smashed home in the 74th minute to level proceedings and to send the game into extra-time.
The Real Madrid legend then put Al Nassr in the lead after heading home in the 98th minute.
His heroics are even more impressive considering he was playing with 9 men after Abdulelah Al-Amri and Nawaf Boushal were sent off.
The 38-year-old is no stranger to delivering on the biggest stage as he helped his side win the Arab Club Champions Cup.
It's the latest trophy in the superstar forward's cabinet, having won league titles in England, Spain and Italy not to mention the Champions League.
