Zamalek play out goalless draw against Wadi Degla

zamalek wadi degla

Newly crowned Egyptian champions Zamalek drew 0-0 with Wadi Degla in their final game of the season on Monday night at the Petrosport Stadium.

In a game where the Whites should’ve probably bagged all three points, they were short in front of goal, with Bassem Morsi and co missing a few notable chances.


Zamalek XI: Mohamed Abou-Gabal; Saleh Moussa (Mohamed Khalifa), Ahmed Dwidar, Islam Gamal, Ahmed Samir; Ahmed Tawfik, Tarek Hamed, Moruf Youssef, Mostafa Fathy (Ahmed Ali); Bassem Morsi, Abdoulaye Cisse (Mohamed Abdel-Megid).

Wadi Degla XI: Haitham Ahmed, Islam Tarek, Tamer Moheb, Karim Mosaad, Mohamed Abdelfattah; Ayman Adel, Mohamed Sherif, Mohamed Abdelatty (Momen Atef), Mohamed Farouk, Mohamed Shawky (Ahmed Abdel-Raouf); Dodi El-Gabbas (Mohab Said).

First half

The pre-match atmosphere saw a guard of honour for the Whites from Degla, for the first time in history.

Mostafa Fathy could’ve opened the scoring for the whites in the opening 17 minutes,  but his curled strike was deflected off Tamer Moheb.

Mohamed Farouk had the chance to give Degla the lead; however, his finished was saved by Abou-Gabal.

Zamalek should’ve had the lead with four minutes to go; Ahmed Samir’s cross, reaching the unmarked Cisse who laid it off to Morsi, but Haitham Ahmed came out in the nick of time.

Second half

Cisse had the chance to make it 1-0 in the opening 10 minutes of the half – his header going wide of the post.

Saleh Moussa’s substitution brought tears to the former Ismaily man’s eyes as the game against Degla was probably his last for the club.

Despite being one of Zamalek’s most dangerous men, Fathy was brought off for Ahmed Ali with nine minutes to go.

The substitue wasted a glorious opportunity to win the final game of the season; unmarked, he put in a cross for Bassem, who failed to get a head on to it – goalless.
