Matchday 13 of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League fixtures were honour over the weekend at the respective match venues.

The biggest match of the week was the game involving Karela United and Asante Kotoko. The Porcupines on Sunday made history as they became the first team to end Karela United's home unbeaten run

The Anyinase based club have for the past 5-years been invincible at the Cosby Awuah Memorial Park but interim Coach Johnson Smith and his charges halted their run on February 7, 2021.

Kotoko who is yet to lose an away game this season extend that streak by beaten Karela United 2-0 with strikes from Imoro Ibrahim and Kwame Opoku getting on the scoresheet either side of the half to secure the maximum points.

They have leapfrog Karela United to the summit of the league after the win.
