But Jires Kembo-Ekoko equalised in the second-half, before an Asamoah Gyan penalty in the 89th minute secured the comeback.
Al Jazira surrendered a 2-0 lead at home to Al Wahda, as the game finished at 2-2.
Fernandinho and Sultan Barghash scored within six minutes of one another, as it looked like they would coast to a comfortable victory.
