Ivorian striker Abou Kone celebrated his return to the starting XI in spectacular fashion, drilling home a hat-trick (22, 67 and 79). Mahmoud Fathallah, 5, Hani Saied and Hazem Emam, 32, also added their names to the score sheet.

Manager Hossam Hassan took some players -- Abou Kone, Hazem Emam, Hani Said, Ashour El Adham and Ahmed Ghanem Soltan -- off the bench giving them a taste of the action alongside regular starters like Mahmoud Abdel-Razek “Shikabala”, Mahmoud Fathallah and keeper Abdel-Wahed El Sayed.

The White Knights imposed their dominance until the final whistle against a helpless side led by former Zamalek midfielder Tamer Abdel-Hamid.

However, the visiting Beni Ebaid made slight improvements in the second half but couldn't manage to slot in a consolation goal.

Zamalek will now face Wadi Degla in round 16.

Earlier in the day, Masry were stunned by Assuit Petroleum, 1-0 courtesy of a fine strike by Abdallah El-Nuby.
