FC Goa in AFC Champions League: All you need to know

The AFC Champions league will be played in India for the first time here with FC Goa becoming the only team from the country to feature in the group stage of the continent’s top-tier competition in club football.

The ISL 2019-20 League champions will compete alongside Persepolis, Al-Rayyan and Al-Wahda in Group E. The Indian club will have its task cut out as it will be up against a side coached by former Paris-Saint-German manager Laurent Blanc.
