The 2019 Copa CONMEBOL Sudamericana will be the 18th edition of the CONMEBOL Sudamericana (also referred to as the Copa Sudamericana, or Portuguese: Copa Sul-Americana), South America's secondary club football tournament organized by CONMEBOL.[1]

The winners of the 2019 Copa Sudamericana will earn the right to play against the winners of the 2019 Copa Libertadores in the 2020 Recopa Sudamericana, and the winners of the 2019 J.League Cup in the 2020 Suruga Bank Championship. They will also automatically qualify for the 2020 Copa Libertadores group stage.

On 14 August 2018, CONMEBOL decided that starting from the 2019 edition, the final will be played as a single match, and confirmed that the final will be played in Lima, Peru at the Estadio Nacional.[2]

Athletico Paranaense are the defending champions, and as they qualified for the 2019 Copa Libertadores group stage as Copa Sudamericana champions, they will only play in this edition if they finish third in the group stage.

Draws[edit]

The draw for the first stage was held on 17 December 2018, 20:30 PYST (UTC−3), at the CONMEBOL Convention Centre in Luque, Paraguay.[17][18][19] For the first stage, the teams were divided into two pots according to their geographical zones:[20][21]

  • Pot A (South Zone): 22 teams from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay
  • Pot B (North Zone): 22 teams from Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela

The 44 teams were drawn into 22 ties (E1–E22) between a team from Pot A and a team from Pot B, with the teams from Pot B hosting the second leg in odd-numbered ties, and the teams from Pot A hosting the second leg in even-numbered ties. This distribution ensured that teams from the same association could not be drawn into the same tie.

First stage[edit]

In the first stage, each tie is played on a home-and-away two-legged basis. If tied on aggregate, the away goals rule will be used. If still tied, extra time will not be played, and the penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winner (Regulations Article 27).[1]

The 22 winners of the first stage advance to the second stage to join the 10 teams transferred from the Copa Libertadores (two best teams eliminated in the third stage of qualifying and eight third-placed teams in the group stage).

Second stage[edit]

In the second stage, each tie is played on a home-and-away two-legged basis. If tied on aggregate, the away goals rule will be used. If still tied, extra time will not be played, and the penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winner (Regulations Article 27).[1]

The 16 winners of the second stage advance to the round of 16 of the knockout stages.

Final stages[edit]

Starting from the round of 16, the teams play a single-elimination tournament with the following rules:[1]

  • In the round of 16, quarterfinals, and semifinals, each tie is played on a home-and-away two-legged basis, with the higher-seeded team hosting the second leg (Regulations Article 22.d). If tied on aggregate, the away goals rule will be used. If still tied, extra time will not be played, and the penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winner (Regulations Article 27).
  • The final is played as a single match at a venue pre-selected by CONMEBOL, with the higher-seeded team designated as the "home" team for administrative purposes (Regulations Article 25). If tied after regulation, 30 minutes of extra time will be played. If still tied after extra time, the penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winner (Regulations Article 28).
