Smouha stun their hosts Ittihad of Alexandria 3-0; while Masry and Petrojet edge past MCDM and Gouna 1-0 in day 14 of Egyptian League

Smouha clinch their second win of the season

Ghanaian striker Samuel Affum netted twice, in the 43rd and 78th minute, and Ahmed Belal slid in the third, in the 52nd minute, to give Smouha a precious 3-0 win over Ittihad of Alexandria to move out of the relegation zone.

Smouha, who started the game laying at the bottom of the Premier League table with only 9 points, dominated the Alexandrian derby to record their second victory of the season.

The newly promoted side are now in the 13th place in the table with 12 points, relegating Ittihad to the bottom spot with only 10 points.

In Port Said, Mohamed Khalifah scored a late winner, in the 82nd, against MCDM to give new Swiss coach Alain Geiger a dream start of his reign at Masry.
