Zamalek defeated Aswan by a comfortable 2-0 margin despite the expulsion of Tarek Hamed at the start of the second half. Zamalek XI: Abu-Gabal; Ahmed Eid, Mahmoud Alaa, Mahmoud El-Wensh, Abdel-Shafy; Hamed, Sassi, Obama; Bencharki, Zizo, Moustafa Mohamed. Although he dominated the early procedures, Zamalek struggled to make his first breakthrough against Aswan's resilient back line. The deadlock was finally broken just before half-time through the young striker mostafa Mohamed. Just as he seemed to be looking up for Zamalek, they suffered a setback when Tarek Hamed received a second yellow card as they had to finish the match with 10 men. The referee then gave Zamalek another chance to kill the match by awarding them a penalty, but the opportunity was wasted by Mahmoud Alaa who saw his effort saved. In the end, the match was sealed by a solo effort by Ahmed Sayed Zizo (62nd minute), while the match ended 2-0 for the White Knights. Zamalek will move up to 4th place in the table, with their next game coming up this weekend in Tanta on January 5 at 5 p.m. local time.
