Egyptian Premier League resumed as Petrojet defeated Beni Suef Telephones 2-0 in the sixth matchday of the competition on Tuesday.

After the first half ended goalless, striker Mohamed Ragab gave the petroleum club the lead on 49 minutes and Saied Kamal ensured their win with a second goal in the 82nd minute.

The sixth round was scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of last week, but it was postponed for a week because of security concerns following the third anniversary of the 25 January revolution.

Dozens were killed as protesters clashed with security forces nationwide, reigniting concerns over whether the league should carry on amid persistent turmoil.
However, the competition resumed as scheduled with Petrojet beating Beni Suef.

The Egyptian Premier League started in December after six months of suspension due to ongoing political turmoil following the July ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood’s president Mohamed Morsi.
