CD Olimpia Now Eight Wins-In-A-Row

Impact’s Champions League opposition in top form...

Deiby Flores (20) runs away in celebration after scoring Olimpia’s second goal agains bitter rivals Motagua in the CONCACAF League quarter final last midweek. Olimpia won 2-0.

Impact fans may say it’s ‘only the Honduran League’, but the form of next week’s CONCACAF Champions League opponents demands respect.

Last midweek CD Olimpia defeated bitter rivals Motagua 2-0 in the quarter-final of the CONCACAF League, ensuring CONCACAF Champions League qualification for 2021.

They also overtook the same opposition to lead Group B of the Liga Nacional after defeating Platense 1-0 this afternoon. It was Olimpia’s eighth straight win, and they’ve conceded in only two of those games and haven’t had their defence pierced in the last four.

In the big game against Motagua their goals came from right-back Maylor Nunez (32 mins) and Deiby Flores (54). They now face Costa Rica’s Alajuelense in the January 4 semi-final.

Their league form is impressive, remaining unbeaten throughout the season is far with 9 wins and 4 draws in 13 games, scoring 27 and conceding only 8.

The Florida test against the Hondurans promises to be a significant challenge for a weakened Montreal squad given recent developments, especially since they begin the tie a goal down after losing to Olimpia in Montreal back in March.

Olimpia now does not have a game until they meet the Impact in Florida on 15 December.
