Petrojet see goalless draw with Al Ahly
Petrojet was involved in a goalless draw with Al Ahly at Suez Stadium in the sixth week of the Egyptian Premier League.
Petrojet manage to get away with one point from their encounter with the Red Devils as Al Ahly stay atop the league table with 16 points.
Al Ahly XI: Sherik Ekramy; Sabri Raheel, Saad Samir, Mohamed Naguib, Ahmed Fathi; Hossam Ashour, Amr El Solia, Momen Zakaria, Abdallah El Said, Kareem Nedved; Junior Ajai.
Petrojet XI: Ali Farag; Taha Adel, Amr Hussein, Osama Mohamed, Hossam Hassan; Hamdy Fathi, Mostafa Shebita, Naser Maher, Ahmed Mostafa; Shimelis Bekele, Mohamed Shaheen.
The first real threat in the game was through Al Ahly’s Ajai as Mohamed Naguib latched onto Abdallah El Said’s cross from a foul, passing it to the Nigerian striker inside the 6 yard box, but Ali Farag miraculously saved it.
Just six minutes later Momen Zakaria caught onto Abdallah El Said’s cross but Farag managed to parry the ball away.
In the 38th minute El Solaya hit the post as he headed in Sabry Raheel’s set piece cross in what could be considered the first half’s most dangerous chance for the red devils.
It was a very calm second half, the first dangerous chance of the half coming in the 83rd minute as Saad Samir broke into the opposition’s midfield. As Petrojet’s defense cleared the ball away from the box, Samir received it, set it up for himself with his chest and volleyed the ball just wide from goal.
Two minutes late Al Ahly came close again as Saleh Gomaa’s corner kick met Ajai’s head inside the 6 yard box but his header went over the bar.
Three minutes into stoppage time, Petrojet started showing signs of life as Mohamed Ramadan went on the counter attack and brilliantly delivered a through pass to Shimelis Bekele inside the box. Bekele sprinted past Ahly defenders, narrowly got his shot away, but Sherif Ekramy was there for the save.
This wasn’t it for Petrojet as in the final minute of the game, Sherif Eramy saved the Red Devils again, saving Kareem Tarek’s shot from inside the box after a Bekele through ball.
