The 2006–07 C.D. Motagua season in the Honduran football league was divided into two tournaments, Apertura and Clausura. Motagua was capable to win its 11th title in the Apertura tournament, giving them the chance to qualify to the Copa Interclubes UNCAF 2007.

Apertura[edit]

After having achieved 31 points in 18 rounds, C.D. Motagua qualified to the Final round in which faced Hispano F.C., with a 6–1 score on aggregate in favor, they advanced to the Final against city archrival C.D. Olimpia, the "whites" moved their home match to San Pedro Sula, believing they would benefit from the fact that this city has very few Motagua fans; despite that, Motagua displayed one of the best games of the season with a 3–1 final score, and so ensured their eleventh national championship.[1]

Clausura[edit]

With the title in their possession, C.D. Motagua were looking to repeat for the Clausura tournament; in the Regular season, they exhibited a very irregular performance, still made it to the Semifinals where they lost to Real C.D. España on 5 May 2007 1–4 on aggregate; only one week later, Edy Vasquez, a permanent player in the Motagua's line-ups died following a car crash in Tegucigalpa at the age of 23.[3]
