Altyn Asyr will fancy their chances of advancing to the grand final after the result in Pyongyang....

Altyn Asyr have wrested a narrow advantage after a 2-2 draw away to North Korea's 4.25 SC in the first leg of the AFC Cup Inter-Zonal final on Wednesday. 

4.25 SC, who had won all their matches prior to this game, went in as the favourites and got the early lead when An Il-Bom fired them ahead in the 15th minute. But if anybody thought it would be a long night for the Turkmen team, they could not have been more mistaken. 

Vahyt Orazsahedov levelled proceedings in the 20th minute to add some life to the game. They were also boosted by the red card given to An Song-il for a second bookable offence on the half-hour mark. 

But Kim Yu-Song put 4.25 SC ahead once again in the 32nd minute and 4.25 SC went into the break ahead. 

But Altyn kept fighting and with nine minutes left on the clock, Nurmyradov equalised to end 4.25 SC's perfect record and hand Altyn Asyr a vital away goal advantage.
