Egyptian Premier League Round-UP | 3rd matchday

Here are the highlights of the Egyptian Premier League 3rd matchday.

FC Masr ends Zamalek’s winning start to the Egyptian Premier League by holding them to a surprise 1-1 draw in Cairo on Sunday.

Achraf Bencharki put Zamalek ahead on the quarter-hour mark but Omar Habashi scored FC Masr’s first ever goal in the top flight to draw them level on the stroke of halftime.

Zamalek were even lucky to escape a shock loss as FC Masr wasted some goalscoring chances, especially in the dying minutes when their fancied opponents poured forward in search of a precious winner.

The result ends Zamalek’s winning start and leaves them two points behind leaders and defending champions Ahly, who kicked off their campaign with three straight and convincing victories. Both sides meet in the Cairo derby in their next match on 19 October.

Al Ahly secure a third straight win in the Egyptian Premier League, thrashing Aswan 5-1 away from home

Ahly continued their blistering start to the new season by crushing promoted Aswan 5-1 in the Egyptian Premier League on Saturday to go top with a maximum nine points from their opening three games.

Goals from Junior Ajayi, Hussein El-Shahat, Hamdi Fathi, Magdi Afsha and Ramadan Sobhi gave Ahly another impressive victory following their 4-0 win over El-Entag El-Harby in their previous match. Oumed Oukri netted a consolation for Aswan.

In-form winger Sobhi took his tally to three league goals in as many games as Ahly maintained their irresistible form.

Ahly, who are eyeing a fifth straight league crown, lie on top with nine points, three ahead of Zamalek and Pyramids who can go level with them if they win their respective matches.
