Guangzhou: Brazilian striker Alan was on target for the third AFC Champions League game in a row on Tuesday, but Guangzhou Evergrande were held to a 1-1 draw by Japan’s Kawasaki Frontale at Tianhe Stadium thanks to Yu Kobayashi’s late penalty.

Alan, who also netted against Eastern and Suwon Samsung Bluewings, put Guangzhou in front in the 26th minute, slotting the ball into the bottom corner to continue his fine run of form.

However, a penalty in injury time from Kobayashi after Yu Hanchao had handled the ball inside the area gave Frontale a last gasp share of the Group G encounter's points and keeps Kawasaki’s hopes of a place in the knockout phase alive.
