Bedia's goal came in the 14th minute as he nodded home Brandon Fernandes' curling free-kick. Jorge Ortiz was brought down in the opposition half and Brandon stepped up to take the deadball.

The Indian whipped in a fine ball and Bedia broke free from the defence to bust the back of the net. Goa lost 2-1 and remain third in Group E on two points.

FC Goa has drawn both of its opening AFC Champions League, playing out goalless draws with Qatar's Al Rayyan and UAE's Al Wahda.
