VIDEO: Salah, Morsy on target as Zamalek ease past Ittihad
Ibrahim Salah and Bassem Morsy scored to give Zamalek an easy 2-0 victory over Ittihad of Alexandria in gameweek 16 of the Egyptian Premier League.
Ittihad had their first real chance in the 28th minute when Khaled Kamar’s superb back-heel inside the box was saved by Zamalek keeper Ahmed El-Shennawy.
Ten minutes later, Stanley Ohawuchi’s cross was met by Ibrahim Salah, but his shot went wide of the post.
Zamalek had a goal disallowed ahead of the break when Shikabala’s free-kick went into the net but the referee cancelled the goal after Mahmoud Hamdy El-Wensh fouled Ittihad keeper El-Hany Soliman.
Ittihad embarked on a counter attack on the stroke of half time but Kamar was denied again by El-Shennawy as the first half ended goalless.
Five minutes into the second half, Ibrahim Salah headed home Shikabala’s corner-kick to give Zamalek a 1-0 lead.
Zamalek were awarded a penalty and Ittihad’s Mohamed Atwa was sent off for a second booking after fouling Ayman Hefny inside the area in the 66th minute. Bassem Morsy scored from the spot to double Zamalek’s lead.
Ayman Hefny was close to add his side’s third goal with three minutes to go but his strike went wide of the post as the game ended in a 2-0 victory for Zamalek.
Zamalek sit fourth in the league table on 28 points, and four games in hand, while Ittihad are 10th on 19 points.
