Zamalek trashed Petrojet 3-0 Thanks to Madbouly & Alaa | VIDEO
A double from exciting new talent Ahmed Madbouly gave Zamalek a second straight 3-0 Egyptian Premier League win, this time at the expense of a tame Petrojet side at Cairo Stadium on Friday.
Central defender Mahmoud Alaa netted for a second consecutive match following a wasted penalty to put Zamalek ahead on the half-hour mark.
Madbouly, who joined in the summer from modest club Nasr Taadeen, scored twice either side of the break following two similar turns inside the area to give Zamalek all three points and further establish himself as one of the team’s new key players.
The 22-year-old has three league goals to his name so far this season, having also found the net with a superb curling shot when Zamalek defeated Masry 2-1 in a tough clash in September.
The win means Zamalek have overcome a mini-crisis which saw them fail to win in three straight matches, only to recover with another 3-0 victory over Petrojet last Sunday.
Zamalek moved to the second spot with 15 points, bridging the gap on leaders Ismaily, who were held to a 1-1 draw with Enppi on Thursday, to two points although the latter have a game in hand.
