Egyptian Premier League
Result: Ismaily 0-2 Al Ahly
Date: 10 March 2021
Venue: Borg El Arab Stadium
Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly moved up to second spot in the Egyptian Premier League with a 2-0 triumph away to Ismaily on Wednesday evening.
The Red Devils were desperate to get back to winning ways after dropping points against AS Vita Club in their CAF Champions League encounter on the weekend.
Despite his side playing catch up in the league, the first half did not produce a lot of goal-mouth action, with Ismaily going the closest with a deflected effort from Shokry Naguib.
As a result, Mosimane opted for a change at the start of the second half as Hussein El Shahat made way for Marwan Mohsen as the visitors went in search of an opening goal.
Al Ahly had to wait until the 70th minute for an opening after being awared a penalty for Mohamd Magdy's foul on Mohamed Sherif, allowing Badr Banound to slot home the opening goal from 12 yards.
The win was sealed with two minutes left on the clock thanks to Salah Mohsen's impressive solo effort that began in his own half.
Mosimane's troops now sit in second spot, three points behind rivals Zamalek having played two games less.
