Debutants Dreams FC to fly Ghanaian flag in CAF Confederation Cup Semi-Final

Dreams Football Club will proudly fly Ghana’s flag in the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup Semi-Finals after fending off stiff competition from former champions, Stade Malien of Mali on Sunday, 07 April.

Following a 2-1 impressive win away from home in Mali last weekend, the Ghanaians who are in their maiden CAF Inter-Club competition came from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw which sent them through on a 3-2 aggregate to the next stage of the competition that will see them within touching distance of continental glory.

Coming into the tie at the back of a 2-1 away win, the Ghanaians were very cautious in their approach, allowing the 2009 champions to have more of the ball with the hope of catching them on the break.

The tactic almost backfired as Yoro Diaby capitalised on poor marking from the Ghanaians on a set piece to fire from close range and level the tie just before the hour mark.


The goal served as a wake-up call for the hosts as they sent numbers forward in search of the equalizer, a tactic that was duly rewarded as Sylvester Simba pounced on a loose ball that the keeper failed to handle to fire home from an acute angle to level matters and send the Ghanaians into the semi-finals on a 3-2 aggregate.

Not only are Dreams in their first ever CAF Interclub semi-finals, but they become the first Ghanaian club in 20 years to reach the knockout stages of a CAF Interclub competition.Dreams’ qualification assures them a meeting with either Zamalek SC or Future FC in the semi-finals.
