The Gaurs finished fourth in the league phase of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season with 31 points. They then crashed out of India's top-tier league after losing to eventual champions Mumbai City FC on penalties in the semi-finals.
Surprisingly, FC Goa have dropped Igor Angulo and Alberto Noguera from their AFC Champions League squad. They decided to head into the continental tournament with just four foreigners - James Donachie, Ivan Gonzalez, Edu Bedia, and Jorge Ortiz Mendoza.
FC Goa, who are the first Indian club to feature in the group stages of the AFC Champions League, will look to make their country proud and entertain their fans in the continental competition.
Al Rayyan SC, on the other hand, finished third in the Qatar Stars League. They also made it to the semi-finals of the Amir Cup, where they will face Al Duhail next month.
Al Rayyan SC will be eager to start their AFC Champions League campaign with a win over FC Goa on Wednesday.
