Congrats to our latest partner the @Colts on their 20-17 win yesterday. #KCvsIND

🎯 It’s been a shaky PL start in defense for TAA, but in passing he ranks:

🔺 1st – passes through the back line (97)
🔺 3rd – passes into final third (184)
🔺 5th – passes leading to shot (20)
🔺 7th – pressured passes

Is Southgate right not to include him for #ENGGER?

#LFC

Overall, the #Packers rank just 18th for yards gained per pass completion, and Rodgers has 4 throw aways. Brady is 8-34 on +10 yard attempts, and 3-11 on +20 yard attempts for #Buccaneers.

Whether it’s Brady’s O-Line, or Rodgers’ receivers; these QBs have trust issues right now.

Tua ➡️ Tyreek

This deep middle 48-yard TD pass brought the #Dolphins within one score of the Ravens in Week 2. It’s currently the 2nd-most improbable completion (20.7% chance) so far in the #NFL.

Another 👀 at @cheetah’s first TD as a 🐬!

📺: Watch #MIAvsBAL on @NFLonCBS

#MiamiDolphins and #BuffaloBills both currently average 6.7 yards per play, tied (also with the Eagles and Chiefs) for 2nd in the #NFL after Week 2.

Buffalo just edges Miami in 1st downs (46-45) and drive-scoring rate (52.4%-47.4%).

Expect a high-scoring game. ⚡️

This week was all about the clash of the titans as Al Ahly were held at a 1-1 draw at home to Zamalek in the Cairo derby, denying the defending champions a chance to narrow the gap at the top.

Third-placed Pyramids lost ground on the top two with a surprise home defeat, while National Bank’s hopes of staying up took another dent as they were beaten by Ismaily.


Top two share the points

Reigning champions Al Ahly entered the match as slight favourites, knowing that a victory in this six-pointer would put them just one point behind Zamalek with two games in hand. Yet it was Zamalek who controlled most of the match, having 14 shots compared to to 10 for the home team.

The deadlock was eventually broken though by Al Ahly in the 73rd minute, when Egyptian international forward Salah Mohsen put the home team in front.

The lead though was short-lived with Zamalek and Tunisia midfielder Ferjani Sassi scored the all-important equalizer in the 80th minute. Despite an intense final 10 minutes there were to be no more goals.


What does it mean?

The top remain the same with Zamalek four points ahead of Al Ahly, although the later having two games in hand. Zamalek will probably be the happier of the two sides as the onus was on the hosts to win the game and close the gap.


Pyramids vs Ceramica Cleopatra

With the Egyptian Premier League already looking like a two horse race and with the top two seeing out a draw, Pyramids missed a vital chance at staying in contention after they were beaten 4-2 by Ceramica Cleopatra.

Pyramids took the lead in the 17th minute through a penalty courtesy of Egyptian International and former Stoke City forward Ramadan Sobhi, with his seventh of the season.

Ceramica Cleopatra though replied in spectacular fashion with a 44th minute equalizer through Shady Hussein, followed by two quick fire goals from Ahmed Yasser Rayyan either side of the interval. Ravyan, the 23 year old son of former Egypt international Yasser Rayyan is now joint top scorer in the Premier League with 10 goals.

Ahmed Mohsen scored a fourth in the 53rd minute, before Pyramids managed a consolation goal through veteran forward Mohamed El Gabbas in the 83rd minute.


What does it mean?

Pyramids missed an opportunity to close the gap on the top two and are now 11 points adrift of top spot.

Ceramica Cleopatra are now in sixth place, and are just three points behind third and are on an impressive five match unbeaten league run.


Ismaily’s incredible run continues

Ismaily’s stunning recent form continued with yet another win, beating strugglers National Bank 2-0.

After winning last week’s six-pointer against bottom side El Entag El Harby SC, National Bank entered this home match with high hopes against an in-form Ismaily side.

But Ehab Galal’s side made it four wins on the trot with an accomplished display.

Ismaily dominated the match with 15 shots to a paltry four for the home team.

Tunisian forward Fakhreddine Ben Youssef broke the deadlock in the 58th minute, before a last minute goal from Ary Papel sealed the game.


What does it mean?

National Bank remain in the bottom three, three points from Aswan who have a game in hand. Ismaily’s remarkable run of form continues. After just one win from their first 17 games, they have won four in a row and are now up to 13th.
