Published on: 26 November 2023

Dreams FC suffered a 2-0 defeat against Tunisian powerhouse Club Africain at the Stade Olympique Hammadi Agrebi in Radès on Sunday in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Club Africain got off to a fly start as a marvellous team play resulted in a 5th-minute goal by Algerian forward Tayeb Meziani. Meziani smoothly received a pass from Bassem Srarfi, calmly slotting the ball into the net.

The Tunisian giants expanded their lead to 2-0 in the 19th minute when Dreams' goalkeeper Solomon Agbasi struggled to save a long-distance effort from Srarfi.

Dreams FC faced additional challenges when their captain, Abdul Jalilu, received a red card, getting a second caution shortly after halftime.

The Ghana FA Cup champions aim for redemption in their upcoming fixture, scheduled against Nigerian side Rivers United at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi next Sunday.

Dreams FC will seek a turnaround on home turf, aspiring to recover from their tough start in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage.

Club Africain, on the other hand, will embark on a journey to Angola for their next game against Academica do Lobito.
