Abdallah El-Said Scores Game-Winning Goal against Assiouty | VIDEO
Abdallah El-Said scored a superb second-half goal to settle a hard-fought contest as Ahly claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Assiouty Sport to record an eighth consecutive victory in the Egyptian Premier League on Wednesday.
The Egypt playmaker produced a goal of sheer class eight minutes into the second half to end the resistance of a spirited Assiouty side, who are managed by ex-Ahly striker Ali Maher.
El-Said netted his second goal of the season, having come in for criticism lately for what many Ahly fans believe his lethargic displays.
Ahly, who won eight out of their first nine league games, moved to within two points of leaders Ismaily. Should the Red Devils win the rest of their rescheduled matches, they will be seven points clear of foes Ismaily on top.
Assiouty Sport lie 12th in the table with 13 points from 12 matches.
