Al Ahly trash Smouha 4-0 in the Egypt Cup semi-final | VIDEO

Ahly closed in on their first domestic double in 10 years after a brace from Walid Soliman led them to an impressive 4-0 victory over Smouha in the Egypt Cup semi-final in Alexandria on Wednesday.

Two late goals in the first half from in-form Nigerian forward Junior Ajayi and Soliman put Ahly in command, with Smouha’s porous back-line struggling to contain a wave of attacks from the league champions.

Soliman was on target again and substitute Saleh Gomaa also scored after a flowing move in the second half to give Ahly a convincing victory following the disappointment of their semi-final loss to Jordan’s Al-Faisaly in the Arab Championship last week.

The Cairo giants will make their third consecutive appearance in the Egypt Cup final when they meet Masry, who beat Zamalek 2-0 on Tuesday, later this month.

Ahly last won the secondary domestic competition in 2007 when they defeated perennial rivals Zamalek 4-3 in a thrilling final.

Although Ahly have won 10 league titles in 11 seasons, the Egypt Cup accolade remained elusive. They lost to Zamalek in the 2015 and 2016 finals.
