Cairo_21 September 2019: Al_Ahly defenders, Mahmoud Metwaly and Yasser Ibrahim, who started the Egyptian Super Cup Derby against Zamalek, will miss the Egyptian League opener against Smouha.

The two players suffered muscular injuries during the game and the team played the last 30 minutes against Zamalek without defenders.

Metwaly suffered an injury at the first half when Al_Ahly was leading the game 1_0 and he was replaced by Mohamed Hany.

At the second half when the score was 3_1 for the Reds, Yasser also suffered an injury that forced him to leave the pitch to be replaced by Hossam Ashour.

Al-Ahly defeated Zamalek 3-2 on Friday night to win the Egyptian Super Cup derby at Borg El Arab Stadium.

This edition of the Super Cup is for the 2017-2018 season when Al Ahly won the Egyptian league while Zamalek won the Egyptian Cup.

Ajayi opened the score for Al-Ahly 17 minutes from the start after he received a wonderful cross from Ahmed Fathy.

Al-Ahly doubled the score seconds before half time through Hussein El Shahat after Zamalek defenders failed to clear the ball to end the first half with a 2-0 lead for Al-Ahly.

The second half started with another goal for Al-Ahly by Junior Ajayi who was his club’s hero during the game.

Everyone expected Al-Ahly to dominate the game but Zamalek returned in the game with Mahmoud Alaa’s two goals from the penalty spot.

Zamalek made many attempts to add the third goal to equal the score but Al-Ahly defense stopped all the opponent’s attempts.

Al-Ahly won the game 3-2 to achieve their 11th Super Cup title.
