Tau Stars As Ahly’s Perfect Start Continues

Percy Tau starred once again for Al Ahly as Pitso Mosimane’s perfect start to the 2021/22 Egyptian Premier League continued with a 4-1 win over Smouha at the Al Ahly Stadium.

Tau made his sixth consecutive start to the season and arrived buoyed with confidence after his stunning strike in the clash against Ghazl El-Mahalla on Monday and it showed as he was a constant menace against Smouha.

They came into the game having conceded just five goals all season but shipped four, while Badr Banoun missed a first-half penalty for the hosts at the Al Ahly Stadium.

Ayman Ashraf, Hussein El Shahat and a brace from the South African made sure Mohamed Metwaly’s stunning effort was nothing more than a consolation.

Tau’s first goal that made it 2-0 saw him turn his marker before slotting home, while his second was a tap-in as Mohammed Hany teed him up for an easy finish to make it 4-1.

The result sees the Red Devils maintain their lead at the summit of the Egyptian top-flight with six wins from six – five points ahead of second-placed Pyramids who have played one game less.
