Dreams FC have made a good impression in their maiden continental campaign and are hoping to join Hearts of Oak as the only Ghanaian clubs to win the Confederation Cup title.

While Coach Abdul Karim Zito's side reached this stage as group winners with four victories and two draws, Stade finished second in Group D with three wins, a draw and a defeat.

Dreams FC will be boosted by the Black Satellites trio of Abdul Aziz Issah, Ofori McCarthy and Emmanuel Adjei, who won gold at the just-ended African Games.

Coach Zito and his goalkeeper, Solomon Agbasi, have expressed optimism about their chances in Sunday's encounter as they chase continental glory.

“We are doing well and we will continue to do our best to get to the top, and we need the support of all Ghanaians to rally behind us in order to deliver the expected result. We are very strong and training very hard, and mentally disciplined,” Agbasi gave the assurance.

Coach Zito believes their drawn match against Medeama SC in the Ghana Premier League last Sunday was a dress rehearsal for the Stade Malien clash.

“I used the Medeama game to prepare for Stade Malien in the Confederation Cup. Three of my players are with the under-20 national team so even with all this, I still got them playing to get what I wanted (a draw or a win),” the coach said confidently.
