Al Ahly comfortably beat arch-rivals 76-56 in Egyptian Premier League action on Thursday.

The Reds dominated the match from the very beginning and managed to maintain their healthy lead throughout the quarters, ending the match with a 20-point difference.

The first period ended 39-26 to the home team, and by the end of the third period the margin had increased to 54-39.

Al Ahly then added a further five points to their cushion in the final quarter, as the game ended 76-56.

The historic rivalry between the Cairo giants has not been limited to football; and Al Ahly headed into the match wanting to avenge their handball team’s recent loss to the Whites.

Al Ahly joins Al-Ittihad, El-Gezira and Sporting on 14 points, while Zamalek reached their 12th point.
