The tournament was won by Colombian club Once Caldas defeating defending champions Boca Juniors 2-0 on a penalty shoot-out. This was the second time, in the history of the tournament, that a team from Colombia won the Copa Libertadores. The first time was during Atlético Nacional's successful campaign.

This was the last Copa Libertadores in which the away goals rule would not be used in every two-legged knockout round. However, starting in the 2008 Copa Libertadores, the away goals rule was removed from the finals.
