In one of the most keenly anticipated fixtures of the season so far, it looked as though the unbeaten Almalyk side would leapfrog the holders when a first-half goal from Turkmenistan’s Arslanmyrat Amanov, coupled with Jovan Djokic 53rd-minute spot-kick, made it 2-0 to the visitors.
But Pakhtakor recovered, pulling a goal back through substitute Igor Sergeev in the 71st minute, before Dostonbek Khamdamov levelled the match three minutes later, ensuring they retained their one-point lead at the top of the table.
