The Gaurs created history in 2020 when they became the first-ever Indian side to qualify for group stages of the AFC Champions League after clinching the top spot in the Hero Indian Super League last season.

FC Goa’s historic maiden voyage into Asian continental football was given further shape in January as they were drawn into Group E of the 2021 AFC Champions League alongside defending West Region champions Persepolis (Iran),  Al Rayyan (Qatar), and the Winners of Play-off West 4 that will be between UAE’s Al-Wahda and Iraq’s Al-Zawraa.

Juan Ferrando’s men will again square off against Persepolis three days later on April 23 before finishing off the group stages with games on April 26 and April 29 against Al Rayyan and Winners of Play-off West 4 respectively.
