Argentine Rodolfo Aruabarina, coach of the Pyramids club, confirmed that his team tied against Zamalek as a fair result, noting that the two teams shared control.
Zamalek drew 1-1 with Pyramids in the match that was held today, Sunday, in the 19th round of the Egyptian We League at Cairo International Stadium.
Aruabarina said in remarks after the match, that Pyramids excelled in the first half, and Zamalek somewhat outperformed in the second half, pointing out that his team had many opportunities and did not succeed in scoring.
He explained that the Pyramids were playing on the victory and the three points in order to advance a step in the ranking table, but he must now think about the next Wadi Degla match after the Zamalek match ended in a draw.
He pointed out that the second half witnessed a decline in physical performance and Zamalek’s attempt to return and compensation, and there were problems with returning to the defense in order to secure the goal of progress.
He emphasized that the second half had some opportunities from the apostates, but the players did not succeed in scoring those easy opportunities, and the performance deteriorated a lot in the second half, and it is necessary to work and continue to pay attention to the performance and focus in the next important meeting.
Regarding the reason for changing Ahmed Tawfiq in the second half, he confirmed that the decision was due to stress, as he returned after an injury for more than a month and a half and participated in the last meeting until he regained his physical fitness.
Zamalek raised its score to 41 points in first place in the ranking table, and Pyramids’ balance became 31 points in third place.
