Al Ahly seal Egypt league title

Al Ahly
Al Ahly have claimed their 35th Egyptian league title

Al Ahly have won their sixth Egyptian league title in five years.

The reigning champions ensured themselves of this season's championship after a 3-0 win over Mansoura.

The victory moved the Red Devils 12 points clear at the top of the table with just three games left to play.

The multiple African champions went into Thursday's game needing just a draw to confirm their 35th championship win overall.

Goals from Osama Hosni (two) and Shehab Ahmed gave the home side all three points against the 10-men of Mansoura, who had goalkeeper Mahmoud Aboul-Saoud sent-off on the hour-mark.

The Cairo-based club can now turn their attention to the African Champions League as they aim to overturn a first-leg deficit after a 2-0 loss in Tripoli against Al Ittihad last weekend.
