Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Berekum Chelsea failed to live up to its billing with no goal in the dull encounter. Dubbed as the battle of colours going into the game , the iconic clash was supposed to be the top liner of the week only to drop down the pecking order.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko came back from behind to tame a spirited Liberty Professionals side going into this game but their defensive mindset all game long took the tempo away from the game. Head coach of the kumasi based side resorted to a back three that has Emmanuel Gyamfi dropping into the defensive unit in a game with few goal scoring chances.
The host meanwhile threaded cautiously despite showing their attacking ambitions routinely. The Blues succeeded in keeping Yakubu Mohammed away from the box but did little themselves to deserve the three points per the 90 minutes. The 2010 league champions intermittently announced their intentions of keeping the points at home but their lack of confidence up front cost them dearly.
The tie eventually ended 0-0 with Emmanuel Gyamfi again picking the MOTM award for his marauding runs down the flanks all game long.
