Junior Ajayi brace earned Al Ahly a dramatic late 2-1 home victory over Tala’a El-Gaish on Sunday.
Ahmed Samir put El-Gaish ahead with a superb free-kick in the 28th minute.
The hosts needed just five minutes to equalize after Mohamed Magdy Afsha found Ajayi with a smart cross and the Nigerian converted it home with a brilliant header.

Ajayi netted the winning goal five minutes from time slotting the ball home from close range.
The victory moved Al Ahly up to second spot in the Egyptian Premier League with 24 points, five behind leaders Zamalek; however, the Reds still have two games in hand.
Their next game will see them travel to face struggling rivals Ismaily on March 10, but first they will host AS Vita Club on Saturday, March 6 in the third round of the CAF Champions League group stages.
