Qatar - Champions League: El Jaish Beat Bunyodkor 1-2

(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) A brace of goals from Brazilian striker Nilmar earned Qatar's El Jaish a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Uzbekistan champions Bunyodkor in their AFC Champions League Group B fixture on Tuesday.

The Qatari side's marquee close-season signing first inked his name onto the scoresheet on the 33rd minute with a fine solo effort and netted his second at a crucial stage on 65 minutes as two-time semi-finalists Bunyodkor threatened to restore parit

Second half substitute Bakhodir Pardaev did net late on in stoppage time for the home side but it was virtually the last touch of the game as the referee called the game to an end shortly after to grant the unbeaten visitors all three points.
