Real Spain saves a golden head against Olympia, who will have to wait until he is crowned king in the Clausura tournaments


The classics between Olimpia – Real España never disappoint in the regular rounds of the Honduras National Football League.

On Saturday, the Carlos Miranda Stadium hosted, in an exceptional atmosphere of crowds, the modern classic match between two of the most famous football teams in Honduras.

In the middle of Holy Week, the 15th round of the Clausura 2023 took place. La Maquina had to win this match to tie the marathon on points for places in the CONCACAF Central American Cup.

In the first minutes of the clash, Olympia overwhelmingly started the match. The whites got the first goal at the feet of Benguchi, who shot into the frame of Bouba, saved the Spanish goalkeeper with his nails and sent the ball into a corner kick.

Pedro Paez responded in the 20th minute of the match. Anticipating the bottom merengue, Paraguay nearly fell and finished off Edric Menjivar who knocked out the slashing crossbar with his eyes.

What Real España did not have was the efficiency of Jose Mario Pinto. The “21” entered the opponent’s area, dribbled exceptionally and determined himself to hit it with his right foot and thus beat Bubba Lopez’s provisional frame 1-0.

Two minutes later came the scare of the day when Jerry Bengtson came close to extending the lead. The white striker dislocated the aurinegro goalkeeper, but could not locate his left foot when he fell before shooting.

Bengtsson himself again got another golden opportunity, as he entered the area in the 44th minute, and hit Lopez’s left post, but the ball hit the post to avoid the second fall of the Spanish goal.

In the 65th minute, the equalizer came. Roberto Osorto entered the area, but Maylor Núñez got into the course of the action and the referee didn’t hesitate to signal a penalty kick.

Ramiro Roca was responsible for cashing the bearer’s check after fixing Menjivar’s left post and thus fixing the match 1-1.
