Pyramids FC kept their TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup run perfect after picking up a 1-0 win over Tunisian side CS Sfaxien in Cairo on Sunday.
The 2019-20 losing finalists have so far picked successive wins, having beaten Al Ahli Tripoli 2-1 in their opening match of the group phase and defeated Zanaco of Zambia 2-0 last weekend.
They now sit top of Group A with nine points, six ahead of second placed Ahli Tripoli who have three points from two matches.
The home side were off to a good start at the June 30 Stadium in Cairo, dominating the chances. Ibrahim Adel twice came close in the 18th and 28th minutes while Abdallah Essaiad had a chance after 32 minutes, but neither could get the ball in the net.
In the second half, the Egyptians continued to press high up the pitch with Fagrie Lakay having a shot that was deflected wide.
They were finally rewarded in the third minute of added time when Ali Gabr’s intended cross swivelled not the net to hand the home side maximum points against a resilient Sfaxien.
