Al Wahda booked a spot in the last-16 of the AFC Champions League after coming from a goal down to beat Uzbekistan’s Lokomotiv Tashkent 3-1.

The visitors took the lead in the 47th minute at Al Nahyan stadium, but the UAE side levelled proceedings through an own goal on the hour-mark.

Brazilian forward Leonardo converted a penalty 13 minutes from time and Khalil Ibrahim struck a stoppage-time goal to seal all three points for Al Wahda.

They currently head Group B with a two-point lead over Saudi Arabia's Al Ittihad, who also advanced to the next round following their 2-0 win over Qatar's Al Rayyan.
