Egyptian Premier League
Result: Al Ahly 2-2 Zamalek
Date: 19 June 2022
Venue: WE Al-Ahly Stadium
Tau was recalled to the starting line-up after missing the midweek win due to being on international duty with South Africa over the past two weeks.
With the international now concluded, goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy, Ali Maaloul and Hamdi Fathi were also back in the Red Devils side while Aliou Dieng missed out through injury.
The home side got off to a good start when star forward Mohamed Sherif profited from a poor clearance from Abdel Ghani before firing past goalkeeper Mohamed Awad on 12 minutes.
The defending league champions had a chance to get back on level terms in the 28th minute when Abdallah Gomaa sent a superb cross into the box, which caused problems although there were no teammates to make contact.
Al Ahly managed to hold out their rivals for the remaining stages of the first, but that was the end of the night for Tau who made way for Hussein El-Shahat at the start of the second half.
It was the visitors who got the next goal as substitute Shikabala sent a cross into the box that found Achraf Bencharki, who powered home a header from close range.
Zamalek then turned game around with 14 minutes left on the clock as Shikabala made it 2-1 after turning home a cross from Youssef Nabih.
The lead did not last long though, as Al Ahly were back on level terms in the 80th minute when Salah Mohsen nodded home a cross from Taher Mohamed.
Zamalek did go agonisingly close to secuing the winning goal in second-half stoppage time as Emam Ashour saw his stinging effort crash against crossbar.
In the end, 2-2 was how the encounter finished as the point leaves Zamalek top of the Egyptian Premier League standings, four points above Al Ahly, who sit fourth but having played three games less.
