Temur Ketsbaia's side took the lead when 31-year-old striker Nikos Frousos gave Anorthosis a potentially crucial away goal on the stroke of half-time. However, Dinamo defender Dzmitri Lentsevich registered an equaliser for the home team on 58 minutes to leave the tie finely balanced before the second leg in Cyprus next week.
The draw gives Anorthosis every chance of achieving an aggregate win, and should they prevail over the two legs they will meet last season's Turkish Superleague runners-up Trabzonspor in the second qualifying round.
