Dreams FC Beat Stade Malien in First Leg of  CAF Confederation Cup Quarterfinal 

Dreams FC secured a 2-1 victory over Stade Malien in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinals, becoming the first Ghana Premier League side to win a knockout game in the tournament since Goldfields (now AshGold) achieved the feat in 2001. The match, played in Mali, saw Captain John Antwi emerge as the hero for Dreams FC, scoring both goals to secure a crucial away win.

The match was a rollercoaster of emotions for Dreams FC, as Stade Malien initially took the lead in the 53rd minute. However, Dreams FC responded strongly, with John Antwi equalizing in the 66th minute. Antwi then stepped up to convert a penalty in the 71st minute, completing his brace and giving Dreams FC a 2-1 lead, which they held onto until the final whistle.

The victory puts Dreams FC in a strong position heading into the second leg, which will be played in Ghana on April 7. With a 2-1 lead, Dreams FC will be looking to secure their place in the semifinals of the CAF Confederation Cup. Despite facing a tough opponent in Stade Malien, Dreams FC’s performance has shown that they are a force to be reckoned with in the tournament.
