Zamalek continued its local uprising, and achieved the third successive victory, this time at the expense of El Gouna in round 13 of the league with two goals without reply.
Zamalek took revenge on the team that largely caused the team not to win the league last season after drawing 2-2 before two rounds of the end of the competition on the same stadium in which Mahmoud Abdel-Razek “Shikabala” and Mohamed Onagm won the white victory away from home.
Zamalek won its 24th spot and maintained its third place, 5 points and a match less than the third Arab Contractors, and 6 points and two games more than Al Ahly, the championship leader, while El Gouna remained in the 12th place with 12 points.
The match started quiet, in the first quarter of an hour, before Shikapala ended this calm.
Returning to form the primary Zamalek, he received a longitudinal ball and fired it with his left foot in the far corner of Mahmoud Al-Gharabawi’s goal, scored by the Apache Zamalek brand, to announce his team’s lead in the 15th minute.
Thus, Shikabala scored his first goal this season with Zamalek in the league competition in his third participation, as he previously participated against Al-Maqasas and Enppi.
Shikabalas last goals in the Egyptian League competition were on June 15, 2017 in Aswan, in the match that ended with that goal.
Two minutes later, Basem Ali almost equalized El Gouna after setting off from the right side and deflecting Mahmoud Alaa and hit it, but one of the stars of the match, Mohamed Abu Jabal, had a lookout with a confident tack in the elbow of the hand.
Omar Al-Saeed won a yellow card in the 30th minute of the match after a strong intervention on Mohamed Mohsen “Laila”.
Eight minutes later, Ahmed Hamdi obtained a strong intervention on Tariq Hamid.
In the 44th minute, El Gouna threatened Zamalek with an organized attack that ended in a cross by Amr Barakat to Amr Abdel-Fattah, who played it against the movement of Abu Jabal, but the goalkeeper who kept his nets clean in the last 4 matches shine in tackling the ball.
The second half continued at the same pace, Zamalek’s control and attempts to shy of El Gouna.
10 minutes and Zamalek scored the second goal, when Shikabala succeeded in cutting the wrong pass from El Gouna players in the middle of the field and then passed the ball to Obama, who in turn passed it to Onajem on the borders of the penalty area, then the latter hit a globe that passed to the right of Al Gharabawi into the net.
Onajim scored his second goal with Zamalek in the league, after recording it in Zamalek’s victory over Tanta in the last round 3-2.
In the 60th minute, Patrice Carteron made his first changes with the departure of Ferjani Sassi and the participation of Mohamed Hassan, then Mustafa Fathi participated at the expense of Shikabala.
Muhammad Abu Jabal continued to shine in front of Ahmad Rayyan and Ahmed Hamdi’s shots, which were also often kept off target before the second exit and Walter Bwalyas participation.
Carteron got an ultimatum in the 80th minute to protest against the referee Amin Omar, before Zamalek completed the confrontation with 10 players, where Abdullah Jumah came out with a tension in the back muscle, minutes after the participation of Mustafa Mohamed at the expense of Omar Al Saeed, who started the match.
