Mohamed Mosaad scores as Al Masry draw 2-2 against in the final fixture of the Egyptian Premier League.

Al Masry dominated the first half as they maintained position and generated a couple of dangerous chances on Ghazl El-Mahalla’s goal.

Just 16 minutes into the game Al Masry’s Ahmed Raouf missed a dangerous 1 on 1 chance after dribbling past El-Mahalla’s defender, but his shot was saved by the goalkeeper.

At the 28th minute the Green Eagles nearly opened the scoreline, however Raouf’s header from an accurately crossed corner kick was magnificently saved by El-Mahalla’s goalkeeper.

The first half ended as a goalless draw between the two sides.

3 minutes into the second half, Mohamed Magdy header went above the crossbar.

At the 54th minute Abdullah Gomaa dribbled skillfully past El-Mahalla’s defender from the right flank, however he was denied a goal as his shot hit the crossbar.

Just one minute later, Mosaad managed to cut inside from the left wing, but his shot was brilliantly save by El-mahalla’s keeper.

El-Mahalla tried to respond to Al Masry pressure, Mohamed Yehia’s shot from outside the box hit Ramzy Saleh’s side netting.

At the 70th minute the Green Eagles managed to break the deadlock, after an outstanding effort by Kaboria who dribbled past El-Mahalla’s defender then crossed the ball to Mosaad, who converted the cross into the back of the net.

Just 6 minutes before the final whistle, El-Mahalla’s Mahdi Sobhi converted an accurate cross past Ramzy Saleh scoring his side’s first goal.

At the 91st minute El-Mahalla took the lead as Mohamed Ali scored his team’s second goal in style after his magnificent chip shot ended inside Al Masry’s net.

Two minutes before the final whistle Al Masry equalized as Ahmed Yasser converted a deflected ball into the back of the net.

Following the draw Al Masry occupies the fourth position in the league table, while Smouha jumped to third following their win against Tala’a El-Geish and have sealed automatic qualification to next season’s CAF Confederation Cup, while Al Masry will now wait for Egypt Cup results.


Mohammed Salama is a 21-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
