Al Ahly trashed El Sharkeya 3-0 in the Egyptian League | VIDEO
Ahly made it five straight wins with an easy 3-0 victory over Sharqeya to maintain their position on top of the Egyptian Premier League table on Wednesday.
An early goal from in-form winger Walid Soliman, a second-half volley from right-back Ahmed Fathi following a superb three-man move and a late curler by substitute Moemen Zakareya allowed Ahly to go four points clear of second-placed and surprise package Maqassa, who have a game in hand.
Struggling Sharqeya remain second from bottom on seven points from 11 games.
