Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan was on target once more again for Al Ain in their hard fought 2-2 draw at Tractor Sazi in the Asian Champions League match played on Tuesday.

Gyan struck to equalize for the Boss in the 54th minute to score his 26th goal of the season.

Al Ain fell behind to a Saeed Daghighi strike after 20 minutes but fought hard to get back into the game nine minutes into the restart.

Zlatco Dalic side then took the lead four five minutes later through Mohammed Abdulrahman.

Tractor Sazi will however not go down without a fight before their home crowd in Tabriz and pulled even in the 61st minute through Farshad Ahmedzadah.

And despite making a late push to get the all-important win, Al Ain held on to grind out the draw which ensures they remain top of Group C ahead of the other group fixture between Al Ittihad and Lekhwiya to be played on Wednesday.
