"Another Al Nassr vs Al Hilal final."

Another fan claimed that Ronaldo would secure yet another trophy, typing:

"Ronny about to win another one."

Here are some fan reactions:

The Saudi Super Cup is a four-team tournament where the top two of the league and the finalists of the King Cup face off. Al-Hilal are the reigning champions of the tournament, having beaten Al-Ittihad 4-1 in the final of the previous edition.

League winners Al-Hilal are the most successful team in the history of the competition, having won it four times since it was created in 2013. Ronaldo's Al-Nassr side are second with two victories. Last time out, they succumbed 2-1 to Al-Hilal in the semis.

Ronaldo will be looking to add to his trophy cabinet with the Saudi side, having won the Arab Club Champions Cup earlier this season. They have finished second in the league twice in a row despite the Portuguese legend bagging a sensational 35 goals this season.

Al-Nassr superstar Cristiano Ronaldo finished as the Saudi Pro League top scorer after bagging a brace in the side's 4-2 win over Al-Ittihad. The 39-year-old finished the season with 35 goals in the league, winning the Golden Boot. He has now won the award in England, Spain, Italy and Saudi Arabia, becoming the first player to do so.

The Portuguese attacker broke another record in the process, the single-season tally for most goals in the Saudi Pro League. The previous mark of 34 was achieved by Al-Ittihad's Abderrazak Hamdallah in 2018-19.

Ronaldo's first top scorer award came with Manchester United in 2007-08, where he scored 31 goals in just 34 games. Following his move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019, he earned La Liga's Pichichi award thrice (2011-12, 2013-14, and 2014-15). He won it in Italy yet again with Juventus in the 2020-21 season, where he scored 29 goals.
