Pitso’ Al Ahly Make It 4/4
Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly have continued their 100% record in the Egyptian Premier League after beating Arab Contractors 1-0 at home.
Percy Tau was once again in the starting XI after returning from international duty with Bafana Bafana, but he had a comparable quiet game.
The visitors thought they had opened the scoreline in the 14th minute but the goal was ruled out due to offside.
Both side’s had several chances to score, but despite an entertaining first half, the spoils were shared at half-time.
VAR came again to Al Ahly’s rescue in the 49th minute when the referee initially gave Arab Contractors a penalty before changing his mind after VAR review.
Al Ahly eventually opened the scoreline in the 67th minute when Hamdy Fathi out a powerful header past the goalkeeper following an inch-perfect corner by Ali Maaloul.
Mosimane’s men came close to scoring a second several times but failed to find the back of the net again.
Al Ahly were reduced to 10 men in the 99th minute after VAR review, but it didn’t change anything on the result.
The 1-0 saw Al Ahly make it four wins from four games and remained at the top of the league table with maximum points.
