Ahly versus Zamalek — a visual history of the great rivalry in Egyptian football

Ahly versus Zamalek — a visual history of the great rivalry in Egyptian football: The struggle between Ahly and Zamalek for football supremacy has been going on for over 100 years, and doesn’t look likely to stop anytime soon. Since 1917, there have been 233 matches between the two teams, of which Ahly has won 102. But for any Zamalkawy who wants to contest that all these victories make Ahly the better team, this Al Hadaqa infographic paints a more nuanced picture, showing match score differences, draws, and the different categories of each match. Fun fact: The biggest victories in history actually belong to Zamalek, who twice achieved a 6-0 victory against their opponents — in 1942 and 1944.
