Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo started the comeback against Al-nassr with his 15th league goal of the season. Ighalo and Al-Hilal had conceded a 17th minute goal and looked to be on course for a loss.

However, just after the hour mark Ighalo found himself at the end of a lofted cross from Saud Abdulhamid and powered home a good header.
The game was however wrapped up in the 80th minute when Salem Al-Dawsari converted his penalty to complete the comeback and ensure Al-Hilal progress to the next stage.
Al-Hilal will now shift their focus to the league, where they are scheduled to take on Al-Hazm on Saturday.
