Posted on April 3, 2014

Zamalek 1-1 Gaish

draw 1-1 against ’s Tala’a El-Gaish in a poor match from the Whites, which extends their winless streak in the league to four games.

Mido’s men hadn’t found a win in the since their 4-0 win against Al Qanah; in what has been a a dry two months for the White Knights domestically.

It’s also worth noting that Zamalek’s manager Mido was not available at the touchline, as he had been banned by the EFA following his actions following a loss to Al Masry.

The first half was dull for the most part, with Zamalek trying to find space on both the right and left flanks, but failing to penetrate Tala’a El-Gaish’s well organized defense line.

El-Gaish, led by Zamalek’s previous manager Helmy Toulan, were able to find space continuously on the counter, and opened the scoring from a surprising free-kick by Hassan Youssef.

Zamalek then responded in the 19th minute after Dominique Da Silva latched onto Hazem Emam’s cross with his head to equalize for the Whites.

The second half continued in the same fashion, with hardly being any chances on goal for either side. Zamalek had many free kicks but lacked a specialist to convert them. The White’s best chance of the half came in the 84th minute, after Said “Otta” played a cross in the box, and Gaafar met it with an off target header.

Zamalek are the 6th in the Group B table with two games in hand after playing 11 games. Mido will have a tough task ahead if he wishes to reach the play-off stage.
