Dreams FC have made a significant impact by becoming the first team from the Ghana Premier League to reach the knockout stage of the CAF Confederation Cup since 2004 when Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak met in the final.

Despite losing 2-1 to Rivers United in Nigeria, Dreams FC progressed to the quarter-finals as the group leaders with 12 points.

A 1-1 draw between Academia and Club Africain in Tunisia, who also played on the same day as Dreams, ensured Dreams FC’s progression to the ‘money zone’.

Uprising star Abdul Aziz Issah scored the all-important away goal for Dreams FC in the 40th minute, giving them a 1-0 lead.

Rivers United pushed hard as Echeta Ugonna Deputy equalized, but Dreams FC’s defense did well until a late winner for the hosts in stoppage time.

Dreams were handed a nightmare in the 81st minute after Seth Agyemang received his marching orders after his second yellow card in the second half.

On the other hand, Medeama SC suffered a humiliating 3-0 loss to CR Belouizdad in their final group game of the CAF Champions League.

Medeama, however, finished bottom of Group D, after managing just one win throughout the group stage campaign.

Dreams FC will now turn their attention to the ongoing Ghana Premier League, where they lie 12th with an upcoming game against Nsoatreman FC on Ghana’s Independence Day.
