Asante Kotoko and Legon Cities played a pulsating 1-1 draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
The two teams came into the game at the back of victories and were hoping to build on it. Asante Kotoko in the opening minutes of the game demonstrated that they needed the result more, piling pressure on their opponents.

Legon Cities didn’t allow the goal to hold them back as they started to give the Asante Kotoko defense problems.
In the 49th minute, the Royals pulled parity through Sadat Mohammed from a rebound after Frederick Asare had prevented the ball from entering inside the net twice through efforts from Jonah Attuquaye and Alex Aso.
The remaining of the game saw both teams push bodies forward for the winning goal but none was able to do enough to get that goal as the game ended 1-1.
