Maaloul's Goal Is Enough To Defeat Aswan

Alahly, Egyptian Premier League, Football

The Red Eagles continued their strong start to the Egyptian League season with a 1-0 win over Aswan on Sunday night at Al Ahly Stadium. 

Ali Maaloul scored the winning goal in the first half from the penalty spot to secure the three points for the Red Eagles. 

Marcel Koller's men are atop of the table with six points after two matches. 

Shady Hussein continued his excellent form and won the penalty after being tackled by Aswan goalkeeper and Maaloul was there to convert it to give Al Ahly the lead after 17 minutes. 

Mohamed El Shenawy was needed in the last minutes of the first half to stop Malick Evouna's effort to deny our former striker the chance to equalize the score. 

Hussein El Shahat missed a clear chance to double the score after receiving a defense-dissecting pass that put him in a perfect place to score but his shot was saved. 

The second half started with a change in the midfield as Amr El Soulia joined the game to replace Aliou Dieng. 

Ahmed Abdelkader scored our second goal in the game but it was ruled out for offside then he was substituted as Bruno Savio joined the game. 

Later, Koller used his bench again as Karim Fouad and Mohamed Sherif replaced El Shahat and Shady. 

Bruno fired a shot in the 80th minute but Aswan's goalkeeper was in the perfect place to save it. 

Al Ahly fans in the strands were happy to receive Percy Tau who joined the game in the last minutes after a long injury. 

Hamdy Fathy, our midfielder, was named the Man of The Match. 

It was an important win ahead of the Egyptian Super Cup match against Zamalek in the UAE.
