Ittihad of Alexandria, Smouha and Arab Contractors fail to register any wins in round 25 of the Egyptian Premier League to remain in the danger zone


Ittihad of Alexandria and Smouha were held to a 1-1 draw by Petrojet and Ittihad El-Shorta respectively while Arab Contractors conceded a 2-0 defeat on Monday and almost need a battle to survive among Egypt’s football elite next season.

After losing at home against Wadi Degla last Wednesday at home, Ittihad managed to earn a draw at Suez against Petrojet courtesy to a late penalty from Mahmoud Chaker Abdel-Fattah in the 86th minute to cancel out Kamal Ali’s spot kick in the 73rd minute.

Ghanaian striker Godwin Attram scored an injury-time equalizer to help Smouha claim a 1-1 draw against their visitors Ittihad El-Shorta.

In Cairo, Arab Contractors endured a torrid time, losing 2-0 at home to Maqassa as Ayman Kamal netted twice on 17 and 37 minutes.

Arab Contractors, 22 points; Ittihad of Alexandria, 20 points; and Smouha, 18 points are hovering above the second division, lying down in the bottom three places.
