Saleh Gomaa saves Al Ahly’s unbeaten league run | VIDEO
A late goal from playmaker Saleh Gomaa preserved the unbeaten run of Egyptian Premier League champions Ahly as they drew 1-1 with Masry in the penultimate match of the season on Tuesday.
Gomaa, who has been given a new lease of life recently, pounced on a defensive mistake to secure a share of spoils with an 86th-minute goal.
Seven minutes earlier, Mohamed El-Shamy made the most of Masry’s first real chance to beat the offside trap and notch home with aplomb as Ahly seemed close to conceding their first defeat of the season.
The Red Devils wrapped up their second straight title with four matches to spare following a 2-2 draw with nearest challengers Maqassa in late May.
They will face arch rivals Zamalek in the Cairo derby in their final match of the season next week.
