VIDEO: Maqassa beat Constantine to advance in Confederation Cup
After conceding a late goal in the first leg in Algeria, El-Maqassa managed to win 3-1 in Fayoum to advance to the next round with a 3-2 aggregate score.
El-Maqassa XI: Mahmoud Hamdy; Hosny Fathi, Ahmed Samy, Abdel-Hamid Samy, Mahmoud Wahid; Hany Said, Abu Bakr Abdel-Latif, Hussein El-Shahat; Mahmoud Dounga, Mido Gaber, Nana Poku.
El-Maqassa got a dream start after Nana Poku managed to score his side’s first goal after 13 minutes. Hussein El-Shahat set Poku up with a cross from the left side that went over Constantine’s goalkeeper, allowing the Ghanaian striker to easily head the ball into the empty net.
The Fayoum-based team forced their control over the game but they failed to translate their possession into more goals. The first half ended 1-0, which levels the aggregate score.
Five minutes into the second half, El-Maqassa scored their second goal. Hosny Fathi received a cross from Hussein El-Shahat who fired into Constantine’s net giving his team a 2-1 lead on aggregate.
Fourteen minutes to full time, Constantine pulled one back, giving the advantage for his side due to the away goals rule.
However, six minutes later, Mohamed Gaber extinguished Constantine’s hopes to advance after he scored the third for El-Maqassa. After amazing effort, Gaber went one-on-one with the goalkeeper before finding the net to pave Maqassa’s way to the next round.
Maqassa became Egypt’s only representative in the Confederation Cup after ENPPI were eliminated by CF Mounana on penalties.
