Zamalek too good for Petrojet | Egyptian league | Match Highlights
Goals from winger Mahmoud Kahraba and midfielder Ferjani Sassi either side of the interval gave leaders Zamalek an easy 2-0 win over Petrojet on Friday as they extended their winning run to eight games in the Egyptian Premier League.
Kahraba finished off a fine move to open the scoring on 23 minutes, taking his tally to eight league goals, on level with the competition’s top scorers — teammate Mahmoud Alaa, Arab Contractors striker Ahmed Ali and Dakhleya striker Hossam Salama.
Sassi converted a controversial second-half penalty to wrap up the win as Zamalek moved eight points clear of nearest challengers Pyramids FC. Petrojet remained second from bottom 15 points from 18 games.
Ahly, Zamalek’s perennial rivals, will now be under pressure to win all of their rescheduled games to close to within three points of their Cairo nemesis.
