Viktor Kassai to referee Cairo derby between Zamalek and Ahly

Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai has been appointed to officiate at Thursday’s Cairo derby between Zamalek and Ahly in the Egyptian Premiere League, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) announced on Tuesday.

This will not be the first time that the 41-year-old Kassai has been to Egypt, having previously refereed last season’s Cairo derby in February, when Ahly defeated Zamalek 2-0.


Zamalek sits third in the Egyptian league table with 34 points, eight points behind leaders Ahly, who have played two matches more.
