CAIRO-20 November 2021: Zamalek bounced back after losing the derby to Al Ahly with a last-gasp win over Ismaily in Matchday 4 of the Egyptian Premier League.
The White Knights failed to break the deadlock in Ismailia until the last 10 minutes of the game when Ahmed Sayed Zizo opened the score from the penalty spot.
Zamalek doubled the score in the dying seconds of the match with a beautiful finish from Omar El Said, securing an important three points in their journey to defend the league title.
Also, Al Ahly achieved a difficult victory over Arab Contractors thanks to a goal from Hamdy Fathy in the second half.
The Red Devils found much resilience from their opponents, who played a defensive game and tried to hurt Al Ahly with counter attacks.
The game saw Hamdy receiving a red card in the last minute of the game as his tackle prevented Al Mokawloon’s striker from leveling the score.
The Red Devils top the table with 12 points after four games, two points ahead of Pyramids, who were held to a draw against Al Masry.
