AFC – DOHA, Salman Bahrani’s spectacular injury-time overhead kick secured a point for Esteghlal Khouzestan on Tuesday as the Iranian side drew 1-1 with Saudi Arabia’s Al Fateh in Group B of the 2017 AFC Champions League.

Bahrani’s late equaliser came thanks to an acrobatic strike after substitute Ali Al Zaqan had looked set to seal all three points for the Saudi club with his effort just five minutes from time.

The draw means third-placed Al Fateh remain two points behind the 2016 Iranian champions who are in second.

The Saudi side are scheduled to meet Lekhwiya in the final round of matches knowing they will need a win over the Qatari side if they are to stand any chance of reaching the Round of 16, while hoping that Khouzestan fail to take any points from their encounter with an already eliminated Al Jazira from the UAE.
