Dreams FC made headlines on Sunday with a crucial victory over Club Africain, leading them to the top of Group C in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Godfred Atuahene's 50th-minute goal proved to be the game-changer for the Ghana Premier League side.

Heading into the match, Dreams FC had a score to settle, seeking revenge for their only loss in the ongoing campaign against their opponents.

The game was evenly poised at halftime, but Atuahene's well-timed strike early in the second half saw Dreams FC take the lead in the thrilling contest at the Baba Yara Stadium.

This victory now places Dreams FC at the top of Group C, bringing them one step closer to a coveted spot in the quarter-finals.

However, the group remains competitive, with Rivers and Club Africain still vying for qualification. To ensure their place in the next stage, Dreams FC must at least secure a draw in Nigeria.

As it stands, Dreams FC leads Group C with 12 points, followed by Club Africain and Rivers United, who are tied on nine points after Rivers' win over Academica.

Dreams FC's journey in the CAF Confederations Cup has been noteworthy, with the team demonstrating resilience and quality under the leadership of coach Karim Zito.

After securing victories over Milo FC from Guinea and FC Kallon from Liberia in the preliminary stage, they earned their spot in the group stage.

Despite this being their debut season in the competition, Dreams FC has emerged as a force to be reckoned with, leaving fans hopeful about their chances of success in the CAF Confederations Cup.
