Ahly are now on the driving seat with 30 points from 12 games, six points ahead second placed Zamalek who will face Dakhleya later on Thursday.

Mohamed ‘Afsha’ Magdi opened the scoring on the stroke of the hour-mark, while Malian midfielder doubled the lead 19 minutes later.

Ahly striker Mohamed Sherif wasted a chance to give his side an early lead in the fifth minute but his close range shot was blocked by the keeper.

Ahly pulled on the attack to open the scoring but they failed against a defensive-minded side Enppi.

The second half saw a complete domination from the visitors who were close on opening the scoring in many occasions.

They needed only 15 minutes to score when in-form midfielder Amr El-Sulaya clears Mohamed ‘Afsha’ Magdi who rounded the keeper to score in an empty net.

After Ahly’s goal, the hosts tried to level the score but they failed to make a real threat.

On the other hand, Ahmed Abdel-Kader and Hussein El-Shahat missed several chances to double the lead.

Malian midfielder Aliou Dieng added the second 11 minutes from time with an excellent individual show after gosting past two challengers to score at the top corner.

Ahly will host Port-Said based-side Masry at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab stadium on Thursday.
