Zamalek outclass Dakhlia FC in the Egyptian League 3-0 | VIDEO
Newly-signed Zamalek midfielder Mohamed Ashraf scored twice to help Zamalek seal their first win of the new league season, beating Dakhleya 3-0 at Cairo’s Petrosport Stadium on Sunday.
Ashraf, who was signed from Talae El-Geish in the close season, scored his first Zamalek goal from the spot in the 58th minute, before another new-signing in Abdallah Gomaa made it two six minutes after the hour mark.
Ashraf completed his personal double in the 79th minute with a fine strike from outside the area, as Zamalek claimed their first win under new manager Nebojsa Jovovic.
Zamalek manager Jovovic made four changes to his starting lineup from the El-Entag draw, with Syria full-back Moayad Ajan, holder Tarek Hamed, Madbouli and Gomaa all coming into the side.
In their bid to claim the league title following a trophy-less season, Zamalek signed a total of 15 players in the summer in addition to a handful of players returning from their respective loan stints.
The Whites, who opened their league campaign with a 1-1 draw with El-Entag El-Harby last week, take on Hossam Hassan’s Masry on Friday.
