The Egyptian Premier League continued its thrilling start with matchday two, and KingFut.com brings you the roundup of all games played.
Ittihad El-Shorta 2-1 ENPPI
Ittihad El-Shorta managed to snatch the win against ENPPI despite playing with 10 men for 45 minutes after the sending off of Yehia Traoré. Salah Riko opened the scoring for El-Shorta before Ahmed Safi equalised for ENPPI with seven minutes to play. However, Mohamed Fawzy managed to snatch all three points for Ittihad El-Shorta in stoppage time.
Damanhour 1-1 Haras El-Hodood
The newly promoted side managed to snatch a draw with the Alexandria based club at home, making up for their 5-1 loss to Smouha.
Ahmed Hassan Mekki opened the scoring for Haras after 15 minutes of play. However, El-Hodood capitulated in the last minute to a Hamada El-Ghanam goal which led the teams to share the spoils.
Ittihad of Alexandria 4-2 Petrojet
Talaat Youssef’s men managed to shock Mokhtar Mokhtar’s Petrojet by beating them by a scoreline of 4-2 in Alexandria.
Ethiopian striker Oumed Oukri opened the scoring for the Alexandrians six minutes into the game with a powerful left foot shot. Mohamed Samir doubled Ittihad’s lead 20 minutes into the 2nd half with a near post header before Mohamed Hamdy scored Ittihad’s third. Oukri then scored his second of the game to make it 4-0.
Petrojet tried to get back into the game but only managed to score twice through Osama Mohamed and Mohamed Ragab but the goals only proved to be a consolation.
Assiouty Sport 1-3 Al Masry
Al Masry’s new recruits Wilson Akakpo and an Ahmed Raouf brace secured the win for the canal based club against the newly promoted side.
Akakpo opened the scoring in the 15th minute before Ahmed Raouf scoring the second 15 minutes later. Edward Thomas halved the deficit for Assiouty in the 52nd minute but Ahmed Raouf secured the 3 points for Al Masry by scoring the third goal on the hour mark.
Al-Nasr 0-4 Dakhleya
Al-Nasr couldn’t comeback from the previous week’s trashing against Tala’a El-Gaish and succumbed to another one, this time at the hands of in-form Dakhleya. Mohamed El-Fayoumy, Ahmed Qetawy, Hossam Paolo, and Ahmed Temsah all scored for the Ministry of Interior side, handing Al-Nasr their second thrashing in less than a week.
Arab Contractors 0-0 Smouha
Both teams played a tactically conservative game with both sides trying to minimise their defensive mistakes. Both coaches weren’t willing to take a risk and ended sharing the spoils.
Al-Ragaa 1-0 Gouna
Al-Ragaa bounced back from last week’s loss and managed to get all three points thanks to a Mahmoud El-Maghraby strike on the hour mark, giving Mohamed Abdel-Samie’s men their maiden win of the 2014/2015 season.
Ismaily 2-2 Misr El-Maqassa
Ismaily managed to take part in another two-all draw after last week’s against Al-Masry. Ayman Abdelaziz opened the scoring for the Fayoum based club 20 minutes into the game before John Antwi levelled the game seven minutes after the restart. However, Ahmed El-Sheikh restored Maqassa’s lead 3 minutes later before Mahmoud Abdelaziz’s strike shared the spoils between the clubs.
Zamalek 6-1 Tala’a El-Gaish
Tala’a El-Gaish was on the receiving end of a thrashing this week after being on the opposite side on the opening matchday. Khaled Kamar and Mo’men Zakaria scored in the 11th and 19th minute respectively to give Zamalek a comfortable 2-0 lead by the first half. Mo’men Zakaria doubled his tally three minutes after the restart before Mohamed Abdel-Shafy and Abdoulaye Cissé scored Zamalek’s 4th and 5th goal respectively. Oussou Konan soon scored Tala’a El-Gaish’s only goal before Momen Zakaria completed his hattrick to seal a big win for Zamalek to kickstart their campaign, after their Super Cup loss against Al Ahly.
