Al Ain and Al Rayyan split the points with a 1-1 draw at Hazza bin Zayed Stadium on Matchday Two of the 2018 AFC champions league.

The home side dominated the early proceedings and were first to find the target when Marcus Berg converted from the penalty spot after Caio Fernandes was fouled inside the box in the 10th minute.

Al Rayyan got back into the game in a similar fashion when Abderrazzaq Hamad-Allah was hurdled inside the six-yard-box and stepped up to take the resulting penalty kick himself to equalise for the Qatari side in the 28th minute.

Rayan Yaslam’s effort from outside the box for Al Ain was the closest either side came to adding a second after the break as the final whistle announced a second draw for the two Group D sides.

Al Ain welcome Esteghlal to the Hazza bin Zayed Stadium on Matchday Three while Al Rayyan travel to Riyadh to play Al Hilal next.
