With a week to go before the start of the Clausura 2023 tournament, Olancho FC delivered a blow of authority in a friendly match played against Olimpia at the Juan Ramón Brevé Stadium in Juticalpa.
A resounding 4-0 in favor of the colts surprised the National League and Concacaf League champion who completed a week of preseason.
The efficiency in the attack commanded by Agustín Auzmendi, plus a perfect match in the defensive back, were key for the Orientals to win the friendly.
Despite the inclement weather in most of the national territory, the people of Olancho hosted the prelude to the start of the Clausura with a great game between Olancho FC – Olimpia.
Pedro Troglio, who started the preseason on Monday, January 9, sent most of his stars to the field, including Kevin López, one of the signings of the season.
Colts hit once in the first half through former Marathon Cristian Cálix, who fired a tremendous long-distance kick to beat the goal of Olympic Naid Güity and establish the provisional 1-0.

For the second half came the show by Agustín Auzmendi, a true goal hunter who in five minutes unleashed madness at the Juan Ramón Brevé Stadium in Juticalpa. “El Pistolero” did not forgive Olimpia’s goal that made water before the forceful actions of the Argentine.
The first came in the 48th minute after a perfect pass from Cristian Altamirano from the left wing, who assisted with three fingers so that the gaucho defined from the right for the 2-0.
Minutes later, an accurate header after a corner kick in the area of the national champion, resulted in the third goal and the second in the private account of Auzmendi. The striker headed the ball that kissed goalkeeper José Mendoza’s side net.
Finally, at minute 80, José Tobías finished sentencing a match in which Olancho FC erased an unknown Olimpia.
In Olimpia, the footballers Edwin Solano, Kevin López and Jean Baptiste made their debut, the three confirmed signings of León for 2023.
Solani Solano was ejected in the last minutes of the game. In addition, he was injured so he had to leave the field of play.
It is worth noting that this is the last weekend before the start of the Clausura 2023 tournament next Saturday, January 21. The whites host Real Sociedad, while Olancho faces Marathón in Juticalpa.
