Pitso Maintains Unbeaten Cairo Derby Record

Al Ahly remain four points behind Zamalek after the two sides played to a 1-1 draw in the Cairo Derby on Monday night.

Egyptian Premier League

Result: Al Ahly 1-1 Zamalek

Date: 10 May 2021

Venue: Cairo International Stadium

Pitso Mosimane handed recalls to Taher Mohamed and Mohamed Sherif while Walter Bwalya returned to the squad but only made the bench.

The game got off to a lively start as Sherif went close with an effort after three minutes before Rami Rabiaa failed to convert after an error from El-Shennawy.

Patrice Cateron's charges continued pressing and were nearly rewarded after 20 minutes when Shikabala's curling effort was denied by El-Shennway while Bencharki was unable to pounce on the rebound.

Al Ahly were presented with a clear opening 13 minutes later when Sherif picked out Hussein El-Shahat, who put his effort wide of the target from close range.

After Zamalek enjoyed most of the ball in the early stages of the second half, Mosimane introduced Salah Mohsen for El-Shahat, a decision which paid dividends.

The Al Ahly substitute managed to open the scoring on 72 minutes with a neat finish past Mohamed Awad after being set up by Amr El-Sulya.

The away side weren't behind for too long as Ferjani Sassi brought his side level five minutes alter to set up a lively finish.

However, neither side were able to bag the winner as the encounter finished all square, leaving Egyptian Premier League leaders Zamalek four points clear of the Red Devils.
