VIDEO: Egyptian Premier League – Matchday 14 Roundup
KingFut.com‘s weekly coverage of the Egyptian Premier League returns with Cairo giants Al-Ahly and Zamalek both booking their spots in the semi-finals, while ENPPI and Ismaily are on track to follow.
El-Shorta 3-0 Al-Ittihad of Alexandria
Al-Ittihad’s terrible season continues with another defeat against third placed El-Shorta. Said Kamal scored his fifth goal of the campaign from a free-kick in a tight angle, while Ali Rabo and Abdullah Farouk sealed the win for El-Shorta to bounce them back to third place.
Misr El-Maqassa 0-1 Wadi Degla
Hany Ramzy’s Wadi Degla pulled of their second consecutive win in their efforts to avoid relegation this season, taking the three points over Hossam Hassan’s Misr El-Maqassa. The Egyptian legend and former Zamalek coach resigned from his post at El-Maqassa after the match, only to have his resignation turned down by the board. Gaber Salem scored the match’s only goal in the 65th minute.
Al-Ahly 2-1 Haras El-Hodood
With this win over Haras El-Hodood Al-Ahly have secured a spot in the semi-finals of the Egyptian Premier League. Walid Soliman scored from the spot in the 12th minute while former Zamalek striker Sherif Ashraf scored a late equalizer only to be left disappointed following young centre-back Saad Samir’s late header to secure the champions’ spot in the semi-finals.
Arab Contractors 0-1 Zamalek
Zamalek were able to put an end to the Mountain Wolves’ decent run of form and bounce back from last week’s defeat in what was quite an entertaining match. Who other than Abdoulaye Cisse could have scored for the Whites? The striker from Burkina Faso added another to his tally with a late header to secure a scrappy win for the White Knights. The former Montpellier striker has really been in fine form this season since his summer move from Al-Masry, scoring nine goals, five in his last four games. Zamalek have now also booked their spot in the Egyptian Premier League semi-finals.
Petrojet 1-3 Ismaily
The Dervishes pulled off an impressive win over mid-table Petrojet to go eight points clear over third place Shorta. Ghanaian John Antwi scored along with goals from Libya-bound Omar Gamal and former Egypt international Mohamed Homos. The promising Marwan Mohsen scored the only goal for the Egyptian Petrol Company’s side.
El-Gouna 0-1 Smouha
El-Gouna lost yet again as Shawky Gharib’s Smouha picked up the vital three points to keep their semi-final hopes alive. Ibrahim Abdel-Khalik scored the only goal for Smouha.
ENPPI 1-0 Telephonat Beni Suef
ENPPI pulled of a scrappy win over Beni Suef as the Petroleum club seek to secure second place to book their spot in the league’s semi-finals. Egypt U-20 star Mahmoud Abdel-Moneim ‘Kahraba’ scored a nicely chipped goal for Tarek El-Ashry’s side.
El-Dakhleya 0-0 Tala’a Al-Gaish
El-Gaish lost third place to El-Shorta after just one week with a draw on Wednesday with relegation strugglers El-Dakhleya.
