Review: Zamalek 1-0 Al-Mokawlon Al-Arab

Tue, Dec. 26, 2017
CAIRO – 26 December 2017: Zamalek has returned to fourth place in the Egyptian League this season after beating Al-Mokawlon Al-Arab 1-0 at Cairo International Stadium on Tuesday.

Mohamed El-Shamy, Zamalek`s midfielder, scored the only goal in the 38th minute of the first half after he made an amazing shot.

Zamalek reached 25 points to come in fourth place, behind leaders Ismaily with 34 points, al-Ahly with 30 points and al-Masry with 27 points. Arab Contractors remain in seventh place in the competition table with 22 points.

The first half saw attempts from both sides, and Youssef Obama, Zamalek`s midfielder, threatened the goal of Abo El Seoud, Al-Mokawlon`s goalkeeper, on more than one occasion, but luck prevented him from scoring.

Shamy succeeded in dismantling the logarithms of Al-Mokawlon`s defense when he got the ball in the middle of the field and sent a shot.

In the second half, Zamalek dominated the game, especially after Mohamed Farouk was sent off as he got the second yellow card after a tough clash with Mahmoud El-Wensh, Zamalek`s defender.

Mohamed Ouda, Al-Mokawlon`s coach, tried to return in the game, but the strength of Zamalek’s defense and the numerical shortage prevented the desire of the Wolves` coach.

It is worth mentioning that in the last match between the two teams in the league championship, Zamalek managed to beat Arab Contractors 2-1 in the second round of the last season.
