Peñarol won the series by 1-0 on aggregate, achieving their 4th. Copa Libertadores title.[2]


The finals were played over two legs; home and away. The team that accumulates the most points —two for a win, one for a draw, zero for a loss— after the two legs would be crowned the champion. If the two teams were tied on points after the second leg, a playoff in a neutral venue would become the next tie-breaker. Goal difference was going to be used as a last resort.
