Mohamad Mosselhi, Sunday 1 Jan 2012

Ghazl El-Mahalla lose their latest match and are in disgrace after the referee was forced to cancel the game following bad behaviour from the team's fans


Ahly win 2-0 in the latest Ghazl El-Mahalla and Ahly match, the Egyptian Football Association announced on Sunday.

The game was called off a few minutes after Ghazl El-Mahalla’s fans invaded the pitch in protest of a controversial own goal, which would have been an equaliser. 

El-Mahalla have been ordered to play their next three home games outside of the city due to their fan’s behaviour during the last game.

El-Mahalla’s midfielder Ahmed Magdy was also handed a two-match ban for his bad conduct toward the referee.
