The match was contested by São Paulo, winners of the 2005 Copa Libertadores, and defending champions Boca Juniors, winners of the 2005 Copa Sudamericana and appearing in their third consecutive final. As both teams have won the competition twice before, this edition determined who will become the first tricampeón of the Recopa Sudamericana.

Boca Juniors successfully defend the title as they beat São Paulo 4-3 on aggregate to win their third Recopa. This victory also positioned Boca Juniors, momentarily, as the most lauded international club of the world.
