Al Ahly got their opening early on in the game when Hodood goalkeeper Ahmed Saad’s attempted clearance hit Ahmed Abdel-Zaher and found the back of the net.
The Red Castle’s goalkeeper Mossad Awad could’ve been on the end of a catastrophic mistake when he rounded Ahmed Hassan Mekky, but Sherif Hazem covered for the former Ismaily man.

Mohamed Rizk tried his luck from distance soon after, but his strike when inches wide of the post.
The Alexandrians could’ve had their equaliser through Abdesalam Nagah, but Mossad Awad was available to put a stop to the one-on-one.

Walid Soliman made it 2-0 seven minutes from time when he latched onto Ahmed Saad’s save to deny Trezeguet’s one-on-one.
Hussein El-Sayed tried his luck from distance soon after, but his strike went well over the bar.
Trezeguet rounded the game off in injury time when darted with the ball towards the desolate Hodood area before slotting it bas Ahmed Saad.
