The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has slapped Cairo giants Al Ahly and Zamalek with fines following the massive derby this past weekend. 

The Red Devils and the White Knights played out to an action-packed eight-goal thriller on Friday night, with Pitso Mosimane's side walking away 5-3 winners over their bitter rivals.

The encounter was not without a bit of drama, though, as several punishable offences took place, thus prompting the EFA to impose sanctions on both sides due to minor disturbances, per KingFut. 

Both teams were handed an EGP50 000 (R47 675) fine after their respective coaching staffs made their way on to the pitch while celebrating various goals.

Home side Zamalek was also hit with an extra EGP25 000 (R23 837) fine after their manager Patrice Carteron (pictured above) did not show up for the post-match press conference.  

The White Knights were also handed a third fine of EGP50 000 (R47 675) for tossing a ball on to the pitch during their opponent's second penalty in the match. 

Following that result, Al Ahly are now top of the Egyptian Premier League table with nine points, while Zamalek dropped from second to fifth on the standings with two wins and one defeat from their first three league matches of the 2021/22 season.
