- Yasmine El Tohamy - The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) have confirmed that they will impose penalties against Zamalek following the Cairo derby incidents.

The Whites’ bus didn’t show up to the Cairo International Stadium on time, which led the referee to call the game off, awarding Al Ahly a 2-0 victory.

There has been a lot of talks on whether the game was going to take place or not as attempts from the White Knights came at the EFA to postpone the game.

It started out with club president Mortada Mansour announcing that Zamalek will not be facing Al Ahly on the 24th, before adding that his side will not suffer any points deduction following their decision not to show up for the game.

Zamalek stated that they couldn’t reach the stadium due to the bad weather condition, however, the EFA announced that they have contacted the security authorities, who confirmed the opposite.

This led to a short statement by the EFA, which read that they will indeed impose fines and penalties against the Whites.

Unfortunate events for Egyptian fans and football as sanctions and reactions are expected from the Egyptian Football Association.

The result means that Al Ahly will remain top of the league table with 48 points from 16 games, maintaining their 100% win record. Meanwhile, Zamalek sit third with 31 points, 17 behind the Reds.
