FULL TIME. Al-Rayyan 1-1 FC Goa

A night of heartbreak for FC Goa! The Gaurs fail to hold on to their solitary goal lead as a 90th-minute goal from Farydoon dashes FC Goa's aim to get a maiden ACL win after Jorge Ortiz put the Gaurs ahead in the first half. Seriton Fernandes' indecision to go for goal proved decisive as both teams only manage to get a point piece from a fiesty ACL encounter.

This is your host, Sayak Dipta Dey, signing off for tonight. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the Asian Champions League and Indian football for all the updates.

Thank you and Good Night!

''Heartbreak for FC Goa''
...
90' GOAL! Al-Rayyan equalised. Farydoon scores for Al-Rayyan after Saviour Gama allows an Al-Rayyan cross into the box. James Donachie and Dheeraj Singh fail to judge the cross and Farydoon puts it in into an empty net. It is all 1-1.
...
86' Al-Rayyan survive! Devendra Murgaonkar plays a fine ball to Seriton Fernandes who just has the keeper to beat but never takes the shot and holds on to the ball. Seriton had options in Romeo Fernandes, and Makan Winkle Chothe in the box but he never passes the ball as well and gives away the possession. It really should have been 2-0 there for the Indian side. 
...
84' Dheeraj Singh is booked for trying to waste time by delaying his goal-kick. 
...
82' Al-Rayyan SC clear their lines. 
...
81' FC Goa get a second corner. 
...
80' FC Goa earn the first corner of the game. 
...
78' Lorent Blanc's side has been reminiscent of an ineffective Spanish football system from the culture of La Masia. Al-Rayyan have had lots and lots of the ball but have never looked like a threatening side so far in the game. They keep passing it among themselves but can never destabilise the FC Goa defence.
...
76' Abdel Aziz Rahman delivers a cross towards Yacine Brahimi, Ivan Gonzalez makes a headed clearance.
...
72' MISS! Glan Martins has immense time and space on the ball and fails to hit the target from outside the box with a powerful shot. 
...
71' Oops! Romeo Fernandes almost scores against his own side while he attempts to clear an Al-Rayyan cross. 
...
70' Substitution for FC Goa:

OUT - Brandon Fernandes
IN - Makan Winkle Chothe
...
69' Substitution for Al-Rayyan:

OUT -Abdulrahman Al Korbi
IN -  Ali Ferydoon 
...
67' Al-Rayyan back on the ball with all of their men thrown up on the field in FC Goa's half as Laurent Blanc's side get desperate for the equaliser. 
...
63' FC Goa have been unable to deliver proper balls into the 6-yard box from set-pieces. They got two well-placed free-kicks in the flanks but failed to muster anything material enough from the two opportunities. 
...
61' Brandon Fernandes goes to the referee's book for a challenge on Abdel Aziz. 
...
59' Saviour Gama dispatches a belter of a shot from distance but the end result is a goal-kick for Al-Rayyan SC. 
...
57' Double Substitution for FC Goa:

OUT - Ishan Pandita
IN - Devendra Murgaonkar

OUT - Romario Jesuraj
IN - Romeo Fernandes
...
55' Referee makes a hash of decisions as he plays an advantage for FC Goa with Ishan Pandita through on goal after an initial foul on Jorge Ortiz but the referee pauses the advantage just before the shot is taken. Strange decision. 
...
54' Abdel Aziz Hatim's delivery from the corner goes out of play directly from the delivery and FC Goa can finally play some football of their own. 
...
53' Yacine Brahimi's shot on goal from inside the box is scuffed and takes a deflection off Ivan Gonzalez to earn a corner for Al-Rayyan. 
...
51' FC Goa being cornered to their own-half by Al-Rayyan. FC Goa want to play outside of their own-half and are trying to move the ball around but lack the definite penetrative quality. 
...
49' Cross from Seriton Fernandes towards Ishan Pandita but Soud Alhajri collects. 
...
48' Al-Rayyan show urgency and intent early on, and have a number of shots on the goal from inside and around the box, but FC Goa clear the danger in utmost unison. 
...
47' SAVE! Dheeraj Singh makes a save to deny Al-Korbi from point-blank range. 
...
46' Second-half kicks-off.

HALF TIME: Al-Rayyan SC 0-1 FC Goa

An early goal from Jorge Ortiz is the difference between the two sides as we head into the break. Al-Rayyan had the majority of the ball but never managed to get a clear cut chance on goal while the Gaurs solely are relying on counter moves. Lots to play for both sides in the second half as FC Goa hunt for a historic first-ever ACL win. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all the coverage.

...
45+5' Al-Rayyan almost score the second goal but Ivan Gonzalez and Dheeraj Singh bail the Gaurs out of imminent danger. Al-Rayyan get a corner but James Donachie clears the danger. 
...
45+4' FC Goa hit Al-Rayyan on counter and Ishan Pandita has a long-range attempt on goal, Al-Rayan goalkeeper saves. 
...
45+3' Edu Bedia gives the ball away cheaply in his own box and almost allows Al-Rayyan to score. 
...
Additional Time: 4 Minutes. 
...
43' Brandon Fernandes is down on his feet in pain after Shoja Khalilzadeh makes a crashing challenge on the Goan. Brandon makes a number of tumbles and seems to be in a definite amount of pain. 
...
42' Ivan Gonzalez is booked for a foul on Yacine Brahimi in the midfield. The Spaniard centre-back misses the next and final game against Al-Wahda on April 29. 
...
41' Yohan Boli's attempt from the set-piece is brilliantly punched away by Dheeraj Singh. 
...
40' Al-Rayyan have a free-kick on the edge of the box as Seriton Fernandes brings Yacine Brahimi. 
...
39' Brandon Fernandes' delivery from the set-piece opportunity is disappointing and Al-Rayyan breaks into the counter. 
...
38' FC Goa burst into pace on the counter with Seriton Fernandes on the ball.  Al-Korbi brings down Seriton and Goa earn a set-piece. 
...
35' Al-Rayyan are having lots of ball and possession but lack penetration into the FC Goa defence. The Gaurs are having no problems in dealing with the Qatari side. 
...
32' The referee has been in a ''no-nonsense'' mode tonight. He has scrutinised the slightest of poor touches by the teams on the opposition and is not hesitant in bringing out the red card. Will we see a booking tonight?
...
29' Glan Martins penalised for a rough challenge from the back on Yacine Brahimi. 
...
26' FC Goa are happy to sit back in their own half and depend on errors by the Al-Rayyan midfield to get the ball back and then go for their own attacking move up the pitch. 
...
...
23' Al-Korabi (Al-Rayyan SC) booked for a tuck back on Jorge Ortiz.
