CAIRO, 19th June, 2022 (WAM) — Ahly shared result tonight with Zamalek in a 2-2 draw in the Egyptian Premier League.

Al Ahly managed to hold out their rivals for the remaining stages of the first half, before the visitors got the next goal as Achraf Bencharki powered home a header from close range with the Reds’ goal keeper standing by idle.
