Pito's Al Ahly Bounce Back With Big Win

Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly got back to winning ways in the Egyptian Premier League with a 3-1 triumph over ENPPI on Saturday evening.

Mosimane made four changes from the 2-1 defeat against Smouha, as Ahmed Mohamed and Kahraba were both recalled alongside Ahmed Koka and Saad Samir, who both made their first starts of the season.

The visitors had a flying start after Hussein El Shahat gave them the lead within a minute from start with a strike from into the bottom corner after was setup by Ramy Rabia.

Mohamed Sherif doubled the Red Devils' lead two minutes later with another composed finish into the bottom corner.

Rabia almost added a third for Al Ahly in the 26th minute with a header inside the box that was saved by goalkeeper Mahmoud Gaad, before ENPPI had a goal disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for handball.

Amr El Soleya finally got the third goal for the Red Devils just before the break after getting on the end of Magdi Kafsha's set-piece to fire into the top corner.

Shortly after the restart, the hosts were awarded a penalty by the VAR for a foul by Samir on Rami Sabri, who made no mistake from the spot to reduce the deficit.

ENPPI continued to fashion chances but were not able to threaten goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy, who had come in for some criticism after Wednesday's los.

Kafsha came close to making it 4-1 in the last 13 minutes but his effort was saved by Gaad, who also denied El Shahat in the last eight minutes, as Al Ahly cruised to a 3-1 win that moved them to within three points of leaders Zamalek in second place.
