Al-Ahly suffered their third defeat of the season at the hands of Gouna, courtesy of a goal from Sherif Reda early in the second half, last Saturday.
The Red Devils have slipped to third in the Group 1 table after two defeats in a row, with Somouha taking the top spot after a 2-0 victory over Marsa Matruh outfit, Raga’a, on Sunday. Samuel Owusu scored early in the game and victory was sealed when Mohamed Yahya doubled Smouha’s lead in the 82nd minute.
Match-day 10 also saw Al-Ittihad Al-Sakandary defeat ENPPI 2-1 with Ahmed Sherweda scoring both goals for the Alexandrian side.
The match between Dakhlia and Arab Contractors ended in a 1-1 draw, and Misr Makasa drew 0-0 with Ghazl Al-Mahalla.
Four Match-day 10 games were yet to be played at the time of writing. Wednesday matches include Qena vs Al-Masry, Al-Minya vs Ismaily, Haras Al-Hodood vs. Talaea Al Geish and Telephonat Beni Suef will play Ittihad El-Shorta on Thursday.
Al-Ahly will look to bounce back from their poor league form in their CAF Super Cup game against Tunisian side Sfaxien on Thursday. Al-Ahly could be boosted by the possible return of veteran striker Emad Meteb who has recovered from a hamstring injury.
