Ghana FA Cup champions Dreams FC secured an essential victory over Kallon FC in the first leg of their CAF Confederations Cup clash gaining a crucial advantage in the two-legged encounter.
Dreams FC started on the front foot by dominating their opponents at the Accra Sports Stadium but had to wait until the second half to be sure of victory.
Godfred Atuahene who got the team’s last Ghana Premier League goal in the previous season contributed massively by getting the first goal for the Still Believe lads by giving them an early lead with a timely goal in the 11th minute.
However, Dreams FC’s attempt to increase the lead before halftime was unfruitful as their opponents gradually gained momentum by responding on the eve of half-time thanks to Daniel Karim’s goal to restore parity.
Dreams FC aimed to bounce back after the break by launching several attacks. Their efforts finally paid off when John Antwi calmly converted a penalty in the 55th minute to shoot the team back into the lead and eventually secure a 2-1 victory.
Officials of Dreams FC had initially expressed their desire to make it to the next round of the competition where they would be divided into groups should they sail through. They would therefore need to hold on to their advantage and hope for a positive result when they travel to Sierra Leone for the return leg.
Kallon FC are expected to host the Ghanaian side at the Southern Arena Stadium on Friday, September 29.
