Dreams FC on Sunday, March 31, 2024, continued their wonderful exploits in the CAF Confederation Cup as they defeated Stade Malien by 2:1 in Bamako, setting up a huge opportunity to secure a spot in the semi-final stage when the second leg returns to Kumasi. 

The still-believe side delivered an incredible performance as they came from behind to cause an upset at the home of their opponent. The host took the lead in the second half after dominating the early minutes. A wonderfully executed free kick from Yoro Diaby saw Stade Malien take the lead. 

After falling short, the Ghanaian FA Cup champions weren’t going to give up as they gradually crawled back into the game with some nice telepathy of play, which saw some pressure being mounted on the home side. 

John Antwi made sure the efforts of his side didn’t go unnoticed, capitalizing on a good chance to bring the game on level terms 13 minutes after going down. 

Dreams FC weren’t done yet as their continued offensive pressure saw them win a penalty five minutes after equalizing. John Antwi from the spot made no mistake as he scored to put the score at 2:1 for the still-believe side heading into the second leg in Kumasi with a huge away goal advantage.
