CAIRO, Jan 7 (Reuters) - African champions Al Ahli lost their 30-month unbeaten domestic record on Sunday, emphatically beaten 3-0 by Ismaili in the Egyptian premier league.

It was the first defeat for Al Ahli in Egypt since they lost the Egyptian Cup final to Arab Contractors in July 2004. Their last league loss was against arch rivals Zamalek in May 2004.

Mohamed Fadl score twice against his former club and Abdullah Al Saied grabbed the other in the top of the table clash. Al Ahli's lead in the standings is trimmed to six points.
