Olympia vs. Atlas – Competition Report – March 8, 2023

The pressure at the National Stadium dampened the performance of Atlas, who were on the brink of elimination thanks to a heavy defeat.

Atlas suffered a heavy defeat against Olympia in the Round of 16 of the Concacaf Champions League. With a score of 4 to 1, the Rojinegros couldn’t withstand the pressure of San Pedro Sula and put themselves in a dilemma for the next stage.

People from Guadalajara enjoyed the heat of Tegucigalpa and were surprised from the start by the locals. One of Honduras’ biggest clubs, Olimpia, put an end to their aspirations as Kevin Josue opened the scoring with a fine goal.

Atlas struggled and did not find himself in one of the largest courts in Central America. Although they found a breather through Julio Furch’s penalty, their defensive oversights humiliated them on the pitch.

Although the first half ended with an even and even look, it was complete for the locals who took the walk due to little attention from the Red and Black defence.

Jorge Bengucci and Jerry Ricardo Bengston scored second and third on the scoreboard, causing the National Stadium to erupt in joy and enjoy an unprecedented feast in a continental tournament.

Although Atlas wanted to react, in search of a goal that would bring them closer, they neglected the lower zone and this led to further problems as Bengueche took advantage of this inattention to penalize the score to 4 to 1.

The striker headed in a filtered pass from midfield and Camilo Vargas was limited with a hat-trick before setting off. The athletic goalkeeper was unable to do anything and bravely walked away, berating his teammates for their indiscretion.
