Published: Updated:

Modibo Maiga scored on his AFC Champions League debut as Saudi champion Al-Nasr edged Uzbekistan’s Bunyodkor 1-0 in their second Group B fixture Tuesday.

Temurkhuja Abdukholikov’s penalty 10 minutes from time rescued a point for Lokomotiv after Sulley Muntari’s first-half thunderbolt had looked set to secure victory for Al Ittihad in Group A of the AFC Champions League on Tuesday.

The result was the second time the teams had shared the points in a week after Lokomotiv and Al Ittihad had played out a 1-1 draw in Tashkent on Matchday 1.

Earlier in the day in Seoul, Brazilian goal-machine Adriano made it seven goals in just two AFC Champions League games as FC Seoul destroyed Sanfrecce Hiroshima 4-1 to stay top of Group F.

After two games, FC Seoul tops the nascent Group F on goal difference ahead of China’s Shandong Luneng, which beat Thai outfit Buriram 3-0.

Brazilians Diego Tardelli and Jucilei put Shandong 2-0 up before Chinese defender Zhao Mingjian curled home a stunning strike with the outside of his boot on 86 minutes.

In other matches Jiangsu Suning of China beat Jeonbuk Motors of South Korea 3-2; Zob Ahan of Iran and Lekhwiya of Qatar played a goalless draw; and Al-Nasr of UAE edged Sepahan of Iran 1-0.
