Doha: Goals from South American duo Gonzalo Viera and Victor

Caceres ensured Al Rayyan’s quest for a first-ever place in the AFC

Champions League knockout phase got off to the best possible start

as they defeated Al Wahda 2-1 in their Group D openeron Tuesday.

Uruguayan defender Viera handed Al Rayyan the lead on 13 minutes

after heading in from a corner but Korean full-back Rim Chang-woo

restored parity ten minutes before the half-time break after volleying

home from another set-piece.

Michael Laudrup’s Qatari champions were not to be denied the three

points in front of their fans, though, as from yet another dead ball

situation – this time a free-kick wide on the right – the ball eventually

reached Paraguay midfielder Caceres who headed past Al Wahda

goalkeeper Rashed Ali to give Al Rayyan the lead on the hour mark and

all three points on the night.
