Zamalek 1-0 Entag | Match Highlights

Zamalek temporarily moved five points clear of their nearest challengers in their bid to finish second in the Egyptian Premier League after a second-half header from Mostafa Mohamed gave them a narrow 1-0 win over El-Entag El-Harby on Sunday.

Mostafa powerfully headed home after a corner was flicked into his path two minutes past the hour mark as Zamalek made up for a disappointing 3-3 draw with Smouha in which they conceded a last-gasp goal.

This time, they held firm after taking the lead to avoid the kind of late lapses that have cost them on some games this season.

Zamalek, who are aiming to obtain the runners-up spot to qualify for next season’s African Champions League along with runaway leaders Ahly, have 52 points, five clear of third-placed Arab Contractors, who still have a game in hand.

Pyramids, who also have a match in hand, lie third on 45 points. Entag’s defeat saw them drop to ninth with 30 points.
