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


Following an impressive 2-1 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, which 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 capitalized 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, who sent numbers forward in search of the equalizer. This tactic was duly rewarded, as Sylvester Simba pounced on a loose ball that the keeper failed to handle and fired 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 have also become the first Ghanaian club in 20 years to reach the knockout stages of a CAF Interclub competition. Dreams’ qualification ensures they meet with either Zamalek SC or Future FC in the semi-finals.
