Salgaocar Sports Club went down by only one goal in their opener in Group D against Al Arouba of Oman and the Indian unit will be boosted with the availability of the national team players who were part of the Challenge Cup 2012.

Karanjit Singh will add more stability at the back while Francis Fernandes and Rocus Lamare will add to the attacking options. Maxime Belouet's injury seems to be the only setback for Karim Bencherifa.

While Salgaocar will be looking to register their first win in their maiden AFC Cup challenge, Yuriy Sarkisyan's unit will have their eyes on staying put at the top of the table after they beat Al Wehdat of Jordan in their opener.
