Zamalek, who won the league title for the second time in a row, didn't lose in the last 14 league games since their 0-1 loss to Talae El-Gaish on 22 May.

The White Knights clinched the title with three games to spare after their nearest opponents Pyramids FC lost their game to Future last week.

Portuguese coach Jesualdo Ferreira decided to play the remaining league matches with the young players and reserves to give the starting players a break.

All the senior players have been dropped from this final game of the league.

On the other side, Eastern Company are officially relegated to the second division, after collecting 30 points in 33 matches to remain at the 17th place of the 18-team table.
