Copa Libertadores

The Copa Libertadores is South America's equivalent of the Champions League, featuring the most successful sides from across the continent.

It was founded in 1960, making this year's competition the 62nd in its history.

Argentina's Independiente and Boca Juniors are the two most successful clubs in the competition's history. Independiente have won seven titles while Boca Juniors have reached a record 11 finals - winning the trophy six times.

Both this season's finalists - Palmeiras and Flamengo - have won the competition twice before.

Palmeiras take on fellow Brazilian side Flamengo in the 2021 Copa Libertadores final at the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Defending champions Palmeiras overcame fellow Brazilians Atletico Mineiro in the last four, while Flamengo will be looking to recapture the trophy after winning the competition in 2019.

South America's top club competition began with 47 teams from 10 national federations.
