Al-Rayyan plays in the Qatar Stars League. A formidable force in its earlier years, the club has not enjoyed the same domination in recent years. The winner of eight top-flight trophies, the club’s last title came in 2015-16 after a trophy drought of 21 years. 

“It’s an important moment for the club, for Indian football as a whole. After the conclusion of the ISL, our entire focus shifted to the AFC Champions League. We are on our way to create history by becoming the first Indian club to compete in a tournament of such a high calibre. We are excited and we will try our best to fly the Indian flag high,” Ferrando said before FC Goa's campaign opener.

Entering unchartered territory on the back of their ISL League Winners Shield last season, the Gaurs will be up against three teams in Group E who all hail from countries that are either regulars or are about to participate in the FIFA World Cup. Apart from Al-Rayyan, last year’s runners-up Persepolis (Iran) and Al Wahda (UAE) are both tough matchups for the Indian side. | READ MORE |
