Al Ahly Super Cup Winner for the 10th Time | Match Highlights
A dreadful blunder from Masry keeper Ahmed Massoud gifted Ahly the Egyptian Super Cup title with a 1-0 extra-time win in the United Arab Emirates on Friday.
Azaro found the breakthrough in the first half of extra time when he stole possession from the hesitant Massoud and substitute Zakareya squandered two clear-cut chances afterwards, firing over the crossbar when sent clear by Azaro before heading wide with the goal at his mercy following another breakaway.

It was also Ahly’s second extra-time win over Masry in the space of five months after the Red Devils came from a goal down to score two goals at the death and win the Egypt Cup title last summer.
Masry’s watertight defence made life hard for Ahly in the first half, with the league and cup champions unable to carve out openings despite their territorial dominance.
There were some swift Ahly exchanges down the flanks but several inviting crosses from Tunisian left-back Ali Maaloul went begging.
At the other end, Masry’s sole attempt came after 12 minutes when Karim El-Araqi rose unmarked after a free-kick was floated into the area but his tame header was easily collected by Ahly keeper Mohamed El-Shennawi, who has recently overtaken Sherif Ekramy as the team’s first-choice goalie.
The second half was no different, with Masry throwing men behind the ball and taking the voice out of the passionate crowd.
