Central Coast Mariners have recorded a second Asian Champions League draw with a 1-1 result at home against Japan’s Nagoya Grampus.

Following on from the scoreless draw with Tianjin Teda in China, the A-League leaders managed to grab another point in Asia’s premier club competition despite falling behind.

Nagoya hit the front in the 21st minute through Japan international Marcus Tulio Tanaka who slotted home from close range before Central Coast defender Patrick Zwaanswijk headed home seven minutes later.

The point sees the Mariners remain third in Group G on two points but they are equal with all other teams in the group following Seongnam Ilhwa’s 1-1 draw with Tianjin.

The next group matches will see Central Coast host Seongnam on April 3 with Tianjin at home to Nagoya.
