After coming mighty close against Al Rayyan on Monday, India’s FC Goa will be keen to sign off their maiden AFC Champions League campaign with a win when they face Al Wahda of UAE on Thursday.
Juan Ferrando’s FC Goa have been impressive in their debut continental competition.
Up against eight-time Qatar Stars League champions Al Rayyan, the Guars took an early lead in the match and held the lead for most of the match.
And if not for a momentary lapse in concentration in the dying moments from their goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh, FC Goa would have nicked a win.
Al Wahda, meanwhile, come into their final match on the back of an impressive win over group favourites Persepolis FC.
The Emirati team, however, will need a huge victory over FC Goa to leapfrog the Iranians to top Group E for a direct entry into the knockouts. Watch FC Goa vs Al Wahda live.
But three points on Thursday could help Al Wahda strengthen their case of making it into the Round of 16 as one of the three best second-placed teams in the West Zone.
