Thu, Apr. 26, 2018
CAIRO – 26 April 2018: Al-Masry defeated Smouha 2-1 on Wednesday night at the Egyptian League at Borg El Arab Stadium to win another three points at the race to win the second place.

Oumed Oukri opened the score for Smouha but Al-Masry players returned in the game with two goals from Aristide Bance and Ahmed Gomaa to win the game 2-1.



Al-Masry reached 58 points, six points behind the second placed, Ismaily, but Al-Masry played two games less.

“It was a tough game against one of the best teams in the League but the mentality of the players helped us to return in the game after Smouha’s first goal,” Hassan told press after the game.

Al-Masry still has four games against El Dakhleya, Enppi, Al-Ahly and Ismaily, while Ismaily has only two games against Al Nasr beside the derby against Al Masry.

“It is a great achievement for us to compete for the second place at the League beside our amazing run at the Confederation Cup. We will do everything to make the fans happy,” Hassan added.

Al-Masry reached CAF Confederation Cup group stage for the first time in their history after defeating Gabon’s Mounana.

The draw put the Egyptian team alongside Mozambique’s UD Songo, Sudan’s Al Hilal and Morocco’s RS Berkane.
