Week-by-week, all season long, KingFut.com will review the action, with match summaries, stats and videos. It’s been a year without domestic football so many players are understandably lacking match fitness, but they sure proved they still remember where the goal is: 14 goals in 8 matches during this first round.

Ismaily 1-0 

Ismaily, who are set to face Algeria’s CR Belouizdad in the Arab Champions League quarter-finals this month, opened their league campaign with a 1-0 win over Gaish, courtesy of a second-half strike from Egypt international Ahmed Khairy.

Extended Highlights:

El-Dakhleya 1-0 Arab Contractors

Dakhleya claimed a vital opening day win by edging relegation rivals Arab Contractors 1-0.  Mohamed Al-Sebaie, who replaced former Ahly and Zamalek midfielder Hassan Mostafa, scored in the 84th minute to seal the victory, three minutes after they were reduced to 10 men.

Smouha 1-1 

Smouha, who lost their top scorer Samuel Afum to Switzerland’s Young Boys during the winter, salvaged a 1-1 draw with Telephonat Beni Suef as an Issiaka Eliassou penalty cancelled Alaa Ali’s superb freekick.

Egypt international Moatasem Salem misses an incredible chance:

Goals:

ENPPI 2-1 

Egypt international Ahmed Raouf, the league’s top scorer last year before its cancellation, gifted Tarek El-Ashry’s ENPPI the lead on 52 minutes before set-piece specialist Fouad Salama equalized with a penalty kick 15 minutes from time.

Despite the petroleum side playing most of the second half with 10 men, after the 55th minute dismissal of Amr El-Halawany, ENPPI managed to snatch all three points, thanks to a last-gasp winner by Abdullah Shahat.

Wadi Degla 1-2 Haras El-Hodood

A horrendous blunder by Wadi Degla goalkeeper Amir Tawfik handed Haras El-Hodood’s new coach Helmi Toulan a winning debut over Wadi Degla.

Ahmed Salama broke the deadlock after 27 minutes before Amr Marei pulled level for Lierse’s parent club on the stroke of half time courtesy of a superb free-kick by El-Hosary.

Degla conceded 20 minutes from the end when goalie Tawfik was caught off-guard and failed to deal with Mohamed Halim’s bouncing ball inside the box.

Military Production 0-1 Police Union

9-man Police Union defeated Military Production thanks to a brilliant free-kick from Said Kamal.

Gouna and Petrojet had byes for the first round of the Egyptian Premier League.
