Kenya’s football national team captain, Michael Olunga, will face Cristiano Ronaldo when his Al-Duhail side travel to Saudi Arabia to play Al-Nassr in the AFC Champions League.
The upcoming match set to take place at Al Awal Park on October 24, marks the third group stage encounter for both teams in their intense pursuit of qualifying for the next round.
Olunga is gearing up for his second encounter with Ronaldo and both strikers are determined to find the back of the net for their respective teams.
The first time these two players faced each other was in March 2018, when Olunga played for Girona while Ronaldo for Real Madrid.
Al Duhail have already touched down in Saudi Arabia in anticipation of this crucial match against the Group E leaders.

A loss in this match would jeopardize their chances of securing a strong position for the return leg, which they will host later this year.
In a pre match conference, Olunga said they are unfazed by Cristiano Ronaldo.
“When you talk about Cristiano Ronaldo, you talk about one of the best players in the world, and for me it is an honor to play on the same field with him…but our goal tomorrow is to win the match,”he said.
At the moment, Ronaldo tops the goal scoring charts with 11 goals in the Saudi Pro League whereas Olunga is third with five goals in the Qatari Stars League.
