VIDEO: Egyptian Premier League – Matchday 13 Roundup
Kingfut‘s weekly coverage of the Egyptian Premier League continues with a very entertaining week of fixtures.
El- Entag El-Harby 0-3 Arab Contractors
The Mountain Wolves continued their exciting run in-form with another win in their attempt to avoid relegation, this time with a win over bottom-placed Group B side El-Entag. Mohamed Farouk opened the scoring before Musa Kabiru’s brace, taking the Nigeria international’s toll to four goals this campaign.
Wadi Degla 1-0 El-Gouna
After a series of terrible results for Wadi Degla, they manage to pull off a huge result after defeating relegation rivals El-Gouna. Ghanaian Akwety Mensah scored the only goal in the 75th minute to give Hany Ramzy his first win as Wadi Degla’s manager. The match was dull and un-entertaining from the neutral point of view, but the end justifies the means – at least for now. Can this be a change in their fortunes?
Ismaily 0-0 El-Dakhleya
In Mohamed Wahba’s first match as Ismaily’s coach, the team dropped two points against group strugglers El-Dakhleya. The Dervishes didn’t seem to look much different than what they were like under former coach Sabri El-Menyawy, but they will surely need an injection of new signings with the likes of Omar Gamal, Ahmed Khairy and Amr El-Sulaya all said to be on their way out of the club.
Tala’a El-Gaish 3-2 El-Shorta
El-Gaish were able to jump up to third place in Group B after a win over El-Shorta in a very entertaining match.
The season’s foreign starlet so far, 21-year-old William Jebor, continued his goal-scoring form with the league’s first hat-trick this season against El-Shorta. The first was definitely a goal of the season candidate, after great work by Ayman Hefny, who also won the penalty for the third goal. Khaled Kamar and Said Kamal scored for El-Shorta.
It was a very tense encounter near the bottom of Group A, Maqassa were seemingly in control and grabbed a late goal only to be let down by a penalty at the end of the match. Former Zamalek striker Hussein Hamdy scored for El-Maqassa and Hussein El-Husseiny equalized for El-Mahalla.
Telephonat Beni Suef 1-2 Al-Ahly
In Mohamed Youssef’s first game in-charge of Al-Ahly since El-Badry’s departure, the team started on the right track sealing three points against Beni Suef. Ahmed Shedid scored a decent free-kick while Mohamed Shokry scored the winner for the Egyptian champions after Sherif Reda equalized for Beni Suef in the 34th minute.
Smouha 0-0 Enppi
Smouha temporarily leap-frogged over Haras El-Hodood after a stalemate with second place ENPPI.
Zamalek 1-2 Petrojet
It was definitely the biggest surprise of the week, undefeated group leaders Zamalek lost against mid-table side Petrojet. It was only last week when Zamalek broke their record with their best start to the season in the club’s history after their 10th straight win. Abdoulaye Cisse continued his spectacular form in front of goal with the equalizer after Burkina Faso international comrade Mohamed Koffi opened the scoring. Petrojet substitute Mohamed Ragab scored to secure the win for the underdogs.
