Misr El-Makkasa to face Zamalek in Egypt Cup quarter-finals

Misr El-Makkasa to face Zamalek in Egypt Cup quarter-finals
have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Egypt Cup following their 2-0 victory over Wadi Degla on Wednesday.

The Fayoum-based side will face Zamalek in the quarter-finals after the Whites beat Entag El-Harby 2-0 on Tuesday, thanks to Mahmoud Alaa’s penalty and an own goal.

Madagascar international Paulin Voavy belted El-Makkasa into a 28th-minute lead after receiving a magnificent ball from Mahmoud Wahid, which he finished perfectly past the goalkeeper.

In the 32nd minute, Degla nearly equalised but Bebo failed to convert Ibrahima Ndiaye’s cross into the net. They were severely punished as minutes later John Antwi doubled his side’s lead, finishing off Hany Said’s through ball.

Wadi Degla tried to come back into the game in the second-half, and they managed to do so in the 87th minute, when Egypt international Mohamed Mahmoud scored a penalty.

Mahmoud had a chance to score the equaliser in the 93rd minute, but his low shot was brilliantly saved by El-Makkasa goalkeeper Ahmed Adel.

The win means El-Makkasa have sealed their place in the quarter-finals, where they will face title holders Zamalek.

They will hope to go far in the Egypt Cup this season, espcially that the cup is their only chance of lifting silverware this season.
