With a goal for each of them, Smouha and Zamalek teams tied in the match that took place at Alexandria Stadium.
Zamalek advanced the feet of striker Basem Morsi in the 60th minute after taking advantage of a smart pass from midfielder Mohamed Ibrahim to put it in the net of Mahdi Suleiman, Smouha’s goalkeeper.
After the goal, Smouha pressed to realize a draw, while Zamalek players relaxed after the competition for the league championship ended in favor of Al-Ahly in the round before.
Zamalek has sought to engage a number of its players who have been absent for a while, such as Ayman Hefni and Shikapala, and despite this, it was the most possession of the ball that scored the goal of progress.
Hossam Paulo striker Hossam Paulo shone, sending several balls towards the goal, saved by Ahmed El Shenawi, with great skill, preventing the Smouha striker from scoring in the net.
In the 87th minute, defender Mahmoud Ezzat scored the equalizer in Brasi from inside the penalty area around his head in the window of Al-Shennawi, so the two teams shared the match points.
With this result, Smouha defends his luck in staying in the golden box, seeking African participation next season.
Smouha raised his score to 52 points in sixth place, equal in points with the fifth-ranked war production, and each match is left for each of them, while Ismaili is in fourth place with 53 points, and he has no matches left.
As for Al-Masry Al-Portsaidi, it is third with 54 points, and there remains one game.
The competition between Al-Masry and Al-Ismaili and Smouha is sparked in finishing the championship in one of the third or fourth places after the remaining match for each of them.
The third and fourth teams qualify for the Confederation Cup tournament organized by the African Union next season.
