However, Al Gharafa pulled a goal back through Younis Mahmoud after 33 minutes before they levelled in the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half through Brazilian midfielder Juninho with a powerful shot.

Al Gharafa took the lead for the first time on the night in the 55th minute with a powerful header from Belal Mohamad, but Qatar SC equalised after 73 minutes through Yousef Ahmed.

Al Gharafa remained in second place in the standing on 11 points, just one ahead of third-placed Qatar SC.

After a scoreless first half, Al Wakra took a surprise lead four minutes after the break when Moroccan striker Adil Ramzi beat two defenders before scoring easily.
