The 2010 Copa Libertadores de América (officially the 2010 Copa Santander Libertadores for sponsorship reasons) was the 51st edition of the Copa Libertadores de América, CONMEBOL's premier international club tournament. The tournament began on January 26 and ended on August 18. During the month of June, the competition was interrupted after the conclusion of the quarterfinals due to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.[3]

Estudiantes were the defending champion, but they were eliminated by Brazilian team Internacional in the quarterfinals.

Internacional won the competition after defeating Guadalajara in both legs of the finals for their second Copa Libertadores title.[4] Internacional qualified for both the 2010 FIFA Club World Cup and the 2011 Recopa Sudamericana.

Qualified teams[edit]

The qualified teams include the 37 teams who qualified from their league positions and the defending champion Estudiantes of Argentina, plus Mexican clubs Guadalajara and San Luis. Those two Mexican clubs were guaranteed placement in the Round of 16, independent of the other three Mexican clubs, due to the fallout of the H1N1 flu outbreak in Mexico during the 2009 Copa Libertadores.[5] Twenty-six teams qualified directly to the Second Stage, a group stage:[6]

  • Berths 1 to 4 from Argentina and Brazil;
  • Berths 1 and 2 from the remaining eight South American football associations and Mexico.

The other 12 teams enter the competition in the First Stage, an elimination play-off stage where the winners advance to the Second Stage:[6]

  • Berths 5 and 6 from Argentina;[A]
  • Berth 5 from Brazil;
  • Berth 3 from the remaining eight South American nations and Mexico.

Tie-breaking criteria[edit]

At each stage of the tournament teams receive 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and no points for a loss. Based on Article 15 in the CONMEBOL regulations, if two or more teams are equal on points, the following criteria will be applied to determine the ranking in the group stage:

  1. superior goal difference;
  2. higher number of goals scored;
  3. higher number of away goals scored;
  4. draw.

In the first stage, third stage, quarterfinals, and semifinals, a penalty shootout is carried out instead of a draw.[7]

First stage[edit]

In the First Stage, twelve teams played two-legged ties (one game at home and one game away) against another opponent. The winner of each tie advanced to the Second Stage. Team #1 played the second leg at home.[6]

Knockout stages[edit]

The last four stages of the tournament (third stage, quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals) form a single-elimination tournament, commonly known as a knockout stage. Fourteen teams will qualify for the knockout competition: the eight group winners, the six group runners-up teams with the best records plus Mexican clubs Guadalajara and San Luis. In each tie, the team with the higher seed will play at home in the second leg. In addition, each club will be able to submit a new squad with up to three player changes 24 hours before the start of their first third stage match.[6]

Seeding[edit]

The 16 qualified teams were seeded according to their results in the Second Stage. The top teams from each group were seeded 1-8, with the team with the most points as seed 1 and the team with the least as seed 8. The second-best teams from each group were seeded 9-16, with the team with the most points as seed 9 and the team with the least as seed 16. Guadalajara and San Luis were given the 13 and 14 seed, respectively, which they had earned in the 2009 Copa Libertadores.
