Egyptian Premier League Round-Up | First matchday

Watch all the goals and highlights right here on

Defending champions Ahly wasted a flurry of goal-scoring chances but still got the job done in their opening Egyptian Premier League game after beating Maqassa 3-1 in Cairo on Sunday.
Tunisian left-back Ali Maaloul converted an early penalty to put Ahly in front but Marwan Hamdi brought Maqassa level four minutes before the break via a fortuitous goal.

Al Ahly spurned a handful of easy chances in a second half they totally dominated as Maqassa’s porous backline left them exposed to wave after wave of attacks.

Winger Mahmoud Kahraba missed a sitter on two occasions but made amends to restore Ahly’s advantage on 65 minutes before midfielder Amr El-Sulaya ensured the win with a late volley.

Ahly, who are eyeing a sixth consecutive league triumph, moved level on three points with Zamalek, Aswan, Ittihad of Alexandria and Ceramica Cleopatra, who all grabbed opening wins.

Zamalek After failing to win any local trophy in the past season, and being routed by Ahly in the African Champions League final, Zamalek coach Jaime Pacheco praised the performance of his team’s players in opening their Egyptian Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win over Arab Contractors on Saturday.

The Cairo giants defeated the Arab Contractors in convincing fashion, with an own goal and a late strike from Mostafa Mohamed.
