The knockout stages of the 2011 Copa Santander Libertadores de América consisted of four stages:

  • Round of 16 (first legs: April 26–28; second legs: May 3–5)
  • Quarterfinals (first legs: May 11–12; second legs: May 18–19)
  • Semifinals (first legs: May 25–26; second legs: June 1–2)
  • Finals (first leg: June 15; second leg: June 22)

Format[edit]

The group winners and runners-up of the second stage qualified for the knockout stages. The sixteen teams played a single-elimination tournament. In each stage, teams played in two-legged ties on a home-away basis, with the higher-seeded team playing the second leg at home. Each team earned 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. The following criteria were used for breaking ties on points, except for the final:[1]

  1. Goal difference
  2. Away goals
  3. Penalty shootout (no extra time is played)

For the final, the first tiebreaker was goal difference. If tied on goal difference, the away goals rule would not be applied, and 30 minutes of extra time would be played. If still tied after extra time, the title would be decided by penalty shootout.

If two teams from the same association reach the semifinals, they would be forced to play each other.
