Al Ahly claims an easy win over Al Masry in the Egyptian League | VIDEO
Reigning champions Ahly passed an early tough test in the Egyptian Premier League after beating Masry 2-0 in Alexandria on Tuesday for their first victory of the season, thanks to goals from Salif Coulibaly and Walid Azaro.
Malian defender Coulibaly, a summer arrival who is proving a handful for opponents with his aerial prowess, opened the scoring with an early bullet header, less than two weeks after he netted in a vital 1-0 African Champions League win at Botswana’s Township Rollers.
Moroccan marksman Azaro, the league’s top scorer last season with 18 goals, made sure of the win with a 73rd-minute poacher’s goal as Ahly made up for a 1-1 draw against Ismaily in the competition’s opener last week.
Ahly are joint leaders with Cairo rivals Zamalek and Dakhleya on four points. Masry are eighth on three points from two games.
