The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said domestic league games scheduled for Saturday and Sunday have been postponed due to bad weather conditions in the country.

Runaway leaders Ahly were due to face Enppi on Saturday, while their Cairo rivals Zamalek were scheduled to meet Masry a day later.

Thursday and Friday's games were also delayed as the country grapples with thunderstorms and torrential rain.

The bad weather killed 20 people, delayed flights and forced the closure of major highways.

Conditions began to improve on Friday and are expected to clear on Saturday.

Ahly, who are firm favourites to win a fifth straight league title, top the table with 49 points, a staggering 16 clear of nearest challengers Arab Contractors, who played a game more.
