VIDEO: Al Ahly down sturdy Dakhleya
Al Ahly defeated Dakhleya 2-0 in the Egyptian Premier League on Monday night at the Petrosport Stadium.
Al Ahly XI: Sherif Ekramy; Bassem Ali, Saad Samir, Mohamed Naguib, Sabri Rahil; Mohamed Hany (Mohamed Nagy ‘Gedo’), Hendrick Helmke; Karim Bambo (Emad Meteb), Abdullah El-Said, Ramadan Sobhy; Peter Ebimobowei (Saladin Said).
Dakhleya XI: Ahmed Fawzy; Hossam Abdelgawad, Rashad Farouk, Essam Said (Mahmoud Samy), Nour El-Garhi (Cyrille Bayala), Ahmed Sedik, Ahmed Kattawi (Khaled Rabei), Emmanuel Karbogi, Farid Shawky, Ahmed Temsah, Hossam Paolo.
Peter Ebi had the first chance to score, but he somehow missed the ball from outside the penalty box in strange fashion.
The Reds kept their foot on the pedal, this time Abdullah El-Said wasting a glorious opportunity to put his side in the lead.
Alaa Abdelaal’s men though were dangerous on the break and could’ve had an opener only for Ekramy to deny the league’s top goalscorer Hossam Paolo.
Paolo could’ve had another goal on the brink of half-time, this time he was also denied by the ever-present Ekramy.
Saad Samir could’ve had a goal in the start of the second half when he unleashed a stinging strike from distance, which was saved by Ahmed Fawzy.
The Ministry of Interior outfit had their best chance of the game 10 minutes after a mixup in the Reds’ backline gave Temsah the chance to open the scoring but the Egyptian international somehow missed an open goal.
Peter Ebi was once again at the centre of danger, this time his volleyed finish was kept out by Fawzy.
Meteb though was the one who got his side’s opener when he latched onto a loose ball to finish into the back of the net.
The Red Devils scored their second with only two minutes remaining; Saladin Said intercepting the ball from Fawzy before finishing into the net to make it 2-0.
