Al-Hasa: A stunning 86th minute Nam Tae-hee equaliser for Lekhwiya saw Al Fateh’s winless run in the AFC Champions League stretch to eight games after an exciting 2-2 draw at Prince Abdullah Bin Jalawi Stadium in Group B on Monday.

Youssef El Arabi had netted a third continental goal in two games to open the scoring for the Qatari visitors after his 19th minute header from Youssef Msakni’s cross, but Nathan Junior’s successfully converted penalty kick saw the sides go into the break all-square.

Al Fateh defender Sayyaf Al Bishi then took full advantage of ‘keeper Amine Lecomte’s failure to deal with Ahmed Al Mubarak’s corner to stab home from close range.

With time running out, it looked like the Saudi Arabian club would finally end a run of seven games without a win in Asia's premier club competition, but it was not to be as Korea Republic midfielder Nam struck a sweet volley from just inside the area that arced over Abdullah Al Oaisher and into the top corner.
