1991 Recopa Sudamericana

The 1991 Recopa Sudamericana was the third Recopa Sudamericana, an annual football match between the winners of the previous season's Copa Libertadores and Supercopa Sudamericana competitions. However, this edition never needed to be played as Olimpia of Paraguay won both the 1990 Copa Libertadores and 1990 Supercopa Sudamericana.[2]

Not played, Olimpia was declared champion after having won both, Copa Libertadores and Supercopa [1]

Olimpia were declared automatic winners of the Recopa Sudamericana after their triumph in the Supercopa Sudamericana.[1][3]

The case of a team being crowned champion of a competition without having played any match, was unprecedented in the history of international football.[4]
