Al Ahly 2-0 ENPPI
Al Ahly kept their Egyptian Premier League title hopes alive after a 2-0 win over ten-man ENPPI at Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo.
Walter Bwalya gave the Red Devils a dream start with the opener in only the third minute after heading home a cross by Ayman Ashraf from close range.
The hosts took the game by the scruff of the neck after Mohamed Magdi Kafsha doubled their lead just before the half-hour mark with a low strike into the bottom corner after combining with Kahraba inside the box and Mosimane's charges went to the break with a two-goal cushion.
Chances were few and far between in the second stanza for both sides, with Al Ahly not taking unnecessary risks given their 2-0 lead, however, the hosts had joy in the last eight minutes after ENPPI were reduced to ten men following the second yellow card of Rami Sabri, who was dismissed, but they did not take full advantage.
The Red Devils still trail Zamalek by two points and need to keep winning and hope the White Knights drop points in the remaining four rounds of matches, as Al Ahly travel to El Gaish on Tuesday evening.
El Ismaily 0-2 Zamalek
Zamalek remain two points clear at the top of the Egyptian Premier League table after a hard-fought 2-0 win over El Ismaily at Ismailia Stadium.
Ismaily, who frustrated Al Ahly to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday, had a bright start, creating chances in the early stages but were let down by their finishing.
The White Knights got in the game late in the second stanza and continued to pressurise the hosts coming from the break, as Emam Ashour eventually broke the deadlock three minutes before the hour-mark with a strike from outside the box after he was teed up by Seifeddine Jaziri.
Patrice Carteron's charges doubled their lead two minutes later courtesy of a header by Jaziri in the centre of the box from a cross by Hamza Mathlouthi and that was the killer blow for Ismaily, as Zamalek held on to their fifth consecutive win.
The White Knights will return to action on Tuesday evening on home soil against relegation-threatened Wadi Degla looking to take another step towards the title, with four games to go.
