Zamalek SC managed to secure their qualification to Egypt Cup round of 16 after defeating Haras El Hodoud 3-1 on Wednesday.
Zamalek were taken by surprise when Hassan Youssuf fired El Hodoud to ninth-minute lead after his low angled shot went to the net after some slack defending.
However, their player Youssef Obama revived their hope once again after equalizing the score in the 19th minute.
Zamalek spurned a slew of goal-scoring chances before taking the lead once again, thanks to Mahmoud Alaa’s efforts from the spot.
In the 67th minute, Alaa was in a good run of form and managed to complete his brace after converting another penalty to gift his team a comfortable 3-1 lead.
Zamalek are set to face Ismaily in Egypt Cup round of 16.
