VIDEO: Ramadan winner sinks Dakhleya
Ramadan Sobhy was able to secure the maximum points for Al Ahly as the Reds beat Dakhleya at Petrosport Stadium.
Fathy Mabrouk continues his successful streak with Al Ahly as his team were able to win their third consecutive league match.
Al Ahly: Sherif Ekramy; Bassem Ali, Saad Samir, Mohamed Naguib, Sabry Rahil; Mohamed Rizk (Ramadan Sobhy), Hossam Ghaly, Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ (Mohamed Nagy ‘Gedo’), Momen Zakaria; Abdallah El-Said, Ahmed Abdel-Zaher (Emad Meteb).
Dakhleya: Ahmed Fawzy; Hossam Abd El-Gawaad, Nour El-Garhi, Essam Said, Ahmed Ayman Mansour; Ahmed Katawy (Hossam Hassan), Ahmed Sedeik (Youssef Mohamed), Emanuel Amady, Farid Shawky, Cyrille Bayala (Khaled Rabie), Hossam Paolo.
A goalless first half in which Dakhleya’s defense was able to successfully prevent Al Ahly from scoring.
Momen Zakaria crossed the ball for Abdel-Zaher inside the box, however the defense was able to clear it.
Minutes later, Dakhleya responded through a counter-attack; Al Ahly’s former player Ahmed Sedeik was unable to follow Ahmed Ayman Mansour’s cross.
Abdallah El-Said tested his luck when he took a shot from outside the box, yet it went beside the post.
Al Ahly kicked-off the second half in the same fashion; Ahmed Abdel-Zaher was yet unable to benefit from Momen Zakaria’s cross.
3 minutes later, Mahmoud Hassan ‘Trezeguet’ missed another great chance as his shot went strangely wide away following Zakaria’s nice through pass.
Dakhleya then became more dangerous through Ahmed Katawy and Hossam Paolo; the former’s shot went centimeters beside the post and the latter’s was stopped by Al Ahly’s defense.
Fathi Mabrouk’s substitutions were able to alter the situation in which Ramadan Sobhy came in for Mohamed Rizk, Emad Meteb for Ahmed Abdel-Zaher and Gedo for Trezeguet.
Dakhleya then cracked under Al Ahly’s pressure and in the 77th minute, the Reds’ teenager, Ramadan Sobhy, was able to score following a play between Gedo, Meteb and Sobhy.
The remaining minutes witnessed attempts from Dakhleya which failed to hit the back of Sherif Ekramy’s net.
The result cements Al Ahly’s position in third place and moves them closer to ENPPI who drew vs Al Nasr.
