Neither Mido nor Hassan Shehata managed to prevail against the other after Ismaily were held to a goalless draw by Arab Contractors in Cairo.

The second league game was played amid tensions that between the two managers dating back to a touchline spat in 2006 during an African Cup of Nations game when Shehata was Egypt coach and Mido a player.

Ismaily had the majority of the dangerous chances - especially during the first half - in a largely insipid game, but failed to make the most of the huge gaps in the hosts’ midfield.

Mido, who steered Ismaily to a 2-0 win over Entag El-Harby in the opening week, failed to make it two wins in a row.

Shehata, meanwhile, bagged his first point of the league campaign after slumping to a 2-0 opening defeat to Dakhleya.

Elswhere, Dakleya managed to make it two wins out of two after beating Haras El-Hodoud, thanks to an 88th minute goal from substitute Islam Abdel-Naeem.

Alexandria’s Ittihad were also another team to prevail in their second league game, with a last-gasp goal sealing a 1-0 victory over Entag.

The goal was scored by Youssef Ibrahim ‘Obama’, on loan from Zamalek, in the 90th minute as he gave his side their second win on the trot.
