Goa vs Al Rayyan
AFC Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 14 April 2021
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Jawarharlal Nehru Stadium.
The Gaurs were placed fourth in this edition of the Indian Super League, and they had made it to the semis of the competition the last time as well. However, they have been on an inconsistent run lately.
They had been dropping points in plenty towards the end of the campaign, and they were also conceding in huge numbers.
Moreover, they came into being just six years ago, and still require a boatload of experience before they could be considered titans in continental competitions.
Meanwhile, the Lions are placed third in the Qatar Stars League this season, while they had secured a second-place finish in the previous edition of the tournament. They are a perennial contender for the podium spots in the Qatar top flight.
They have found the back of the net consistently lately – be it at home or on the road, and they have also performed well in these last several months – disregarding their encounters against some of the best teams in the competition.
By the looks of things, expect the determined Rayyan to post the three points this Wednesday, against the struggling Goa.

Goa vs Al Rayyan Prediction
Juan Ferrando’s men were winless in nine of their preceding eleven overall games, and they had a total of just four clean sheets from their past 30 fixtures. Moreover, they have also won just thrice at home since March of 2020.
On the other hand, their opposite number were unbeaten in 18 of their last 25 overall match-ups, and in the process they had gone on two separate four-game winning streaks, and an entirely different five-fixture winning run.
Do also note that they have lost just five times on the road since March of 2020.
Taking into account these observations, expect Al Rayyan to secure the victory this Wednesday.
