Recap

A highly combustive game with packed midfield by both sides rendered the game a highly compact keeping both players behind the ball with the opponent in possession.

Great Olympics changed their Orthodox 4-2-3-1 system to a more 4-3-3 role  with 5 midfielders coming up against Asante Kotoko’s  4-2-3-1 where Andy Kumi Francis was the leading marksman.

it was Olympics who dominated much of the play in the first half, but struggled xto create any meaningful opening to the Kotoko back line.

Relying deeply on counter attacks, Asante Kotoko used Mubarik Yussif and Mudasiru Salifu to release long searching balls to Emmanuel Gyamfi on the right flank, but Eric Osei Bonsu, and Hamza Zakari were on hand to keep the swift winger at bay.

Samuel Ashie Quaye moved to the midfield after the half hour mark to try his legs on opening up the Kotoko set up, but his efforts proved futile

Both sides failed to threaten each other in the entire half  bringing the game to a half time break

Kotoko came close to score in the 66” after Godfred Asiamah cross was to the goal area was headed out by Hamza Zakari.

sensing danger of not getting a goal, Coach Annor Walker threw more men upfront to try break the back of Asante Kotoko but still failed to connect some of the few chances that came their way,

James Akaminko who had labored for a goal all afternoon had his close range shot saved by  Goalkeeper Razak Abalora in the 78th minute.

Asante Kotoko had a swift counter attack a minute later but Godfred Asiamah’s cross was met by Michael vinicius but his shot was parred away by Benjamin Asare in goal for the Dade boys.

The two teams however tried their all to get a goal, but were held by the opponent.
