Their joy was shortlived as Benyettou put Al Wakrah on level terms and Khalid gave them the lead on the half-hour mark.

The fast-paced action saw Guedioura equalise for Al Gharafa before going into half-time break.

Al Wakrah too waged a spirited battle and they went in front again near the hour mark through Coulibaly, only to see Koo soon help Al Gharafa draw parity as the teams shared the spoils.
