Knockout stages[edit]

The teams were seeded 1 to 8 (first placed teams of each group) and 9 to 16 (second placed teams of each group); the best seeds played the worst seeds. To prevent a final with two teams from the same country, CONMEBOL paired Santos with Grêmio and Boca Juniors with Cúcuta Deportivo in the semifinals.[1]
