Al Nasr mathematically relegated from the Egyptian Premier League
Al Nasr have been mathematically relegated from the Egyptian Premier League, following their 2-1 loss in an albeit tricky game away at Al Masry.
The Cairo based club have been relegated at the first attempt after being promoted last season, which ended a two year drought from the top flight.
In a not particularly memorable season, Al Nasr have picked up just three wins in the league as well as going on a winless run of 15 games. While two of those three wins came against El Geish, the highlight of their season is their 4-1 away win at last season’s runners up Misr El Makkasa.
Al Nasr started well today taking the lead in the third minute, before Aristide Bance and an Ahmed El Sebai own goal secured three points for the Green Eagles in heartbreaking fashion. With just three games remaining the loss against Al Masry means that their 11 point deficit is impossible to overcome, guaranteeing second tier football again next season.
Potentially joining Al Nasr in the second tier next season are El Raja and Tanta who currently occupy the relegation spots, while Wadi Degla and El Dakhleya are also still not safe from the drop.
Al Nasr’s next game is against fellow strugglers El Raja before a potential dead rubber at home against ENPPI.
