CS Sfaxien midfielder Mohamed Ali Moncer opened the score on 39 minutes, but the Eagles of Carthage were unable to hold onto their lead.
On-loan Olympique de Marseille forward Saber Khalifa had the opportunity to double the North Africans’ lead on 52 minutes after winning a spotkick. However, after electing to take the penalty himself, he was unable to beat the goalkeeper the first time, before seeing his rebound tipped over by a stunning save.
Yu Dabao equalised on 94 minutes when Tunisian keeper Farouk Ben Mustapha fumbled a freekick into the path of the Beijing Guoan attacker.
