Thank you for reading the news about VIDEO: El-Sulya scores late to secure three points for Al Ahly against Tanta and now with the details

- Yasmine El Tohamy - Al Ahly earned a hard-fought victory against a resilient Tanta side in the Egyptian Premier League’s 30th round.

The first half had very few real chances from both sides with Al Ahly dominating the game in possession but not finding any openings in the final third.

The Red Devils’ first real threat on goal came at the stroke of half-time when they thought they scored the opening goal of the game.

Ahmed El-Sheikh sent a chipped through ball to Mahmoud Kahraba who chested it down and unleashed a venomous strike that beat Tanta goalkeeper Mohamed Ashraf.

However, the goal was checked by the video assistant referee (VAR) and was ultimately ruled out for a handball on Kahraba before the half-time whistle.

In the 79th minute, Al Ahly finally managed to break the deadlock through former Ismaily midfielder, Amr El-Sulya.

Ali Maaloul delivered a sublime cross at the far post that was met by Mohamed Magdy Afsha, who laid off the ball to El-Sulya inside the penalty as the latter tapped home the only goal of the evening.

With this victory, Al Ahly now raise their points tally to 79 after 30 games played with four matches remaining this season.

Their next game will be on Wednesday against second-division side Tersana in the Egypt Cup’s round of 16. Kick-off takes place at 20:00 CLT.
