Group stageEdit

The nine teams were drawn into one group of five teams and one group of four teams. The hosts Ecuador were placed in Group A, plus each group contained one team from each of the four "pairing pots": Argentina–Brazil, Colombia–Paraguay, Peru–Uruguay, Chile–Venezuela.

The top two teams of each group advance to the semi-finals, while the teams in third and fourth advance to the fifth place and seventh place play-offs respectively. The teams are ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers are applied in the following order:[5][6]

  1. Goal difference in all games;
  2. Goals scored in all games;
  3. Head-to-head result in games between tied teams (two teams only);
  4. Drawing of lots.

All times are local, ECT (UTC−5).
