Zamalek dominated the game early on, Ahmed Ali unleashed a shot which was saved by Mahmoud Abou El-Seoud.
Two minutes later, Zamalek were awarded a penalty after a cross from Mostafa Fathy was handled by Abdellah Galal.
Mohamed Ibrahim duly gave the Whites the lead when he cooly converted the resulting spot-kick.
The White Knights were awarded another penalty, Mohamed Ibrahim tried to emulate Antonin’s 1976 ‘panenka’ but his penalty hit the crossbar.
The White Castle’s domination continued until the Royals finally scored a second goal through Mahmoud Fathallah, who headed past Abou El-Seoud.
Three minutes into the second half, Mostafa Fathy made it 3-0 when his finish was saved by Abou El-Seoud but much to the youngster’s luck, the ball found its way into the net.
Zamalek sealed the win when substitute Arafa El-Sayed assisted Omar Gaber for the fourth goal five minutes from time.
Al Qanah could’ve scored a consolation late on but Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed saved Dodgi’s effort to end the game with a clean sheet.
