Full Draw: Egypt Cup round of 16

Egyptian FA
Al Ahly will face El-Gouna while will take on Haras El-Hodood in the 2015 round of 16.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) have held the round of 16 draw of the Egypt Cup on Saturday at their headquarters.

The round of 16 games of Egypt’s oldest football competition are set to be held between July 6 and July 15. The quarterfinals are scheduled to take place mid-August while the semi-finals will be held towards the end of the same month.

The EFA have previously announced that the cup final will be played on August 27.

Full Draw:

Al Ahly vs El-Gouna
Arab Contractors vs Ittihad El-Shorta
Misr El-Maqassa vs Dakhleya
Damanhour vs Petrojet
Smouha vs Al-Nasr
Ismaily vs Al-Ragaa
Ittihad of Alexandria vs Wadi Degla
Zamalek vs Haras El-Hodood

In case Al Ahly qualified to the round of 8, they will face the winner from the Arab Contractors and Ittihad El-Shorta game. Zamalek will play against either Ittihad of Alexandria or Wadi Degla, in case the Whites qualified to the next round.

It is worth nothing that the Cairo derby between Al Ahly and Zamalek can only happen in case both teams make it to the final of the competition. Ismaily, however, will face Zamalek in the semi-finals if both of them won their games in the round of 16 and round of 8.

Zamalek are the current holders of the Egyptian Cup, after defeating Smouha in the final under the leadership of former manager Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’.
