Al Ahly can’t stop winning in the League | Ahly 1-0 Assiouty Sports | VIDEO
League leaders Ahly made it 11 wins on the spin after overcoming a plucky Assiouty Sport side 1-0 at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium on Friday.
The winner was scored by substitute Walid Soliman from the spot 20 minutes from time, after the referee had adjudged Assiouty’s Mohanad Mostafa to have handled the ball inside the area in what appeared to be a debatable decision.
Ahly returning skipper Hossam Ghaly was included in the squad for the first time since arriving in January from Saudi side Al-Nassr, but the 36-year-old midfielder remained confined to the bench throughout.
The defending champions cemented their position on top of the Egyptian league table with 63 points, 17 ahead of second-placed Ismaily who played a game less. Assiouty are 12th on 29 points.
