After a barren draw in regulation time, the Red Devils bounced back after missing their opening two kicks from the spot to wrap up the tie 5-4, and further extend their unbeaten streak against their archrivals since 2007.
The White Knights were on the verge on victory but Burkina Faso midfielder Mohamed Koffi blasted wide the decisive kick before the Ahly bounced back to win it.
However, Koffi blasted wide to the dismay of all allowing Ahly to come back after a 3-3 tie. After Sabri Raheel and Mohamed Rizk hit target for Ahly, Ibrahim Salah’s shot at the post ensuring the Red Devils a record eighth Egyptian Super Cup, six more than Zamalek, whose last title was in 2002.
It was the second time Ahly had beaten Zamalek in the annual one-off match on penalties after the 2003 edition. Ahly had earlier won the Egyptian League for a record extending 37th time.
The Egyptian Super Cup ushers in the new season with the commencement of the 2014/2015 season due to kick-off on Monday, 15 September 2014.
