During the 70s, 80s, and early 90s it was considered without doubt the greatest derby of the Honduran football, during these 25 years both team won a total of 16 championships (9 Olimpia and 7 Real España), 3 during the 70s for both teams, 4 for Olimpia and 2 for Real España during the 80s, and 2 for both during the early 90s. During the late half of this decade, time during which Olimpia has won 2 Championships and Real España 1, the rivalry has recover some of its luster. Both teams are the only "Tricampeones" Three-consecutive championship victories, Real España won 3 complete season championships and Olimpia 3 half season championships.
