All eyes on Al Ahly’s new striker Souleymane Coulibaly | VIDEO
After a stunning debut against Dakhleya a few days ago, Ivorian striker Souleymane Coulibaly has maintained his scoring form after leading Ahly to a 2-0 victory against Petrojet on Thursday.
The 22-year old forward? who had his first starting role after scoring a double on his debut last Saturday, opened the scoring in the 40th minute to grab his third goal in only two games since joining Ahly last January.
Veteran winger Walid Soliman secured the three points of the game in the 78th minute.
The Reds – with 58 points after 22 games – are now seven points clear on top ahead of second placed Maqassa to edge closer to their 9th league title in the past 10 seasons.
Coulibaly, the former Kilmarnock forward, scored another goal but it was ruled out for offside. He kept the defenders on their toes with his pace and physical game. He also showed great understanding with Soliman and Abdallah El-Said combining in the final third.
In the 78th minute, Soliman came at the end of a long ball from Ahmed Fathi to skip past the keeper and score in the empty nets to put the game beyond reach.
