Celebrations begin ahead of the return fixture

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the Dreams FC players were spotted in the dressing room jamming to King Paluta's trending new music, Aseda, singing the lyrics heartily as they credit their win to God.

According to sports journalist Owuraku Ampofo, Dreams FC's first-leg win makes them the first Ghana Premier League side to win a knockout tie in the CAF Confederation Cup since Goldfields (now AshGold) in 2001.

The team has already arrived in Ghana to prepare for the return fixture on April 7 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

Sports analyst Lawrence Baidoo exclusively told YEN.com.gh that "The game in Mali gave Dreams FC a fair idea of the importance of getting an away win in a knockout game, and they will be looking to build on that performance in the return leg."
