Braga and Udinese share a score draw in their Champions League qualifying first-leg.

Braga's Champions League qualifying tie against Udinese remains finely poised after a 1-1 first-leg draw.

Dusan Basta gave the Italians a dream start with an away goal by powering home a header from Antonio Di Natale's delivery.

Braga dominated possession for long spells but failed to create chances and trailed at the interval.

Paulo Bento's side continued to press in the second half and found a stunning equaliser through an unlikely source.

Brazilian full-back Ismaily ran onto Hugo Viana's pass and slammed home a strike off the crossbar from outside the area.

Braga will need to score in Italy next week to keep their group stage hopes alive.
