After a dull first half in which Ismaily looked the better side, Ahly were awarded a timely penalty that Moroccan defender Benoun converted to break the deadlock on 72 minutes.
Ismaily poured forward in search of a late equalizer but the gaps they left cost them with two minutes remaining as Mohsen broke free to wrap up the win.
Ahly needed a victory to dispel the doubts that arose from some inconsistent displays lately, which saw them lose to Tanzania’s Simba and draw with DR Congo’s Vita Club in the African Champions League.

They lie second in the table with 27 points and will overtake Zamalek with a three-point lead if they win their two rescheduled games.
The woes of Ismaily continued as another loss left them third from bottom on 10 points, three adrift of safety.
