Cristiano Ronaldo scored two penalties as Al-Nassr made it back-to-back wins in the Saudi Pro League and continued to respond after losing their opening two matches of the season.
Ronaldo was denied a first half hat-trick as the referee wrongly ruled that he fouled a defender before producing a brilliant header into the top corner.
He then played in Sadio Mane, who applied a calm finish to put the home side three goals up before the break.
Sultan Al-Ghannam added a fourth in the second half as Al-Nassr moved up to sixth, still six points behind leaders Al-Ittihad.
