Ismaily returned to the top of Group B after defeating Masry 2-0 away from home in the Egyptian Premier League on Monday.

Ismaily were level on points with Petrojet ahead of the game, although Petrojet had a better goal difference. Ismaily were lifted by second-half goals from midfielder Ibrahim Hassan and Ghanaian striker John Antwi.

Hassan, who gave Ismaily a precious win with a wonder strike against rivals Zamalek earlier this month, broke the deadlock two minutes after the interval when he pounced on a loose ball to slot home the opener.

League top-scorer Antwi then doubled his side's advantage with a left-footed strike in the 79th minute for his fifth goal of the season.

Ismaily, who only drew with Ittihad El-Shorta last week, are now at the top with 13 points from five matches as they host Wadi Degla next week.
