CAIRO-9 January 2020: Al Ahly defeated Ceramica Cleopatra FC 2-0 on Friday night in the sixth week of the Egyptian Premier League.
Two late goals from Mahmoud Kahraba and Walid Soliman sent Al Ahly back to top of the table.
Al Ahly suffered during the first half and their new signing Walter Bwalya failed to find the target for the Red Devils on many occasions.
In the second half, Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane replaced Taher Mohamed Taher and Ahmed Ramadan Beckham with Mohamed Magdy Afsha and Mahmoud Kahraba.
Mosimane's substitutes made the difference in the second half as Afsha set up Al Ahly's opening goal in the match after 78 minutes as he passed the ball to Kahraba who found the target by a cool finish.
Three minutes later, Kahraba added the second goal but it was disallowed by the referee after checking VAR.
Walid Soliman secured Al Ahly's victory minutes before the final whistle as his header met Ali Maaloul's cross to make the score 2-0.
Al Ahly returned back to the winning track after a goalless draw last week against Wadi Degla.
Al Ahly lead the Egyptian Premier League table with 13 points from five matches, two points ahead of second-placed El Gouna.
