Victor Osimhen doubled his side's lead in the 34th minute through a spot kick as the three time African champions took a two goal lead into the dressing room.
However, coach Gernot Rohr's men relinquished their leadership in the game after conceding two goals in the last 12 minutes of the meeting.
Oleksandr Zinchenko's 78th minute and Roman Yaremchuk's 80th minute ensured the hosts avoided a defeat after regulation period.

The AFCON 2019 bronze medal winners may have conceded two late goals in the game, their performance across board seems pleasing to the teeming fans.
Francis Uzoho returned to the starting line up for coach Rohr's side while newly invited German based star Maduka Okoye was an unused substitute all through the game.
Ikechukwu Ezenwa also did not taste action all through regulation period, while Anderson Esiti, Josh Maja and Aribo got playing time in the game.
Kelechi Iheanacho was also on the bench throughout the game in Ukraine and will be hoping he can fight his way back into the starting line up in their next game.
