Olimpia beat Real Spain 1-0 and became the new leader of the group in the Central South area, displacing Motagua to second place.
The albos are first in their group with 31 points, two behind the Cyclone that was left with 29 units after losing 1-0 to UPNFM.
Pedro Troglio and company are one step away from taking first place in the group, a place that will give them the opportunity to contest the rounds with the leader of the North and secure a ticket to the final.
But not everything is sentenced. On the last day, Olimpia will face Marathón and Motagua visits Platense. A white draw and a victory for Diego Vázquez’s pupils could pair both clubs with 32 points.
