Zamalek lose against El-Geish 1-0 | #Egyptian League | VIDEO
Below-par Zamalek suffered another dent in their hopes of winning the Egyptian Premier League after slumping to a 1-0 loss to Talae El-Geish on Wednesday, losing more ground in the title race.
Striker Salah Amin, 36, notched what proved to be the winner with a superb curling effort three minutes past the hour mark to condemn Zamalek to their fourth defeat in 16 league matches, ending their three-match winning run.
Zamalek wasted a first-half penalty but were otherwise lethargic, failing to break down the dogged defence of El-Geish who were dangerous on the break.
They remain fourth in the table with 28 points but are nine behind leaders Ismaily and eight adrift of second-placed and arch-rivals Ahly, who have a game in hand.
Zamalek next face nemesis Ahly in the first Cairo derby of the season on Monday.
