Copa Libertadores records and statistics

This page details the records and statistics of the Copa Libertadores. The Copa Libertadores is an international premier club tournament played annually by the top football clubs of South America. It includes 3–5 teams from all ten CONMEBOL members plus Mexico, whose clubs are sometimes invited as guests to the tournament. It is now held from January to November and it consists of eight stages.

The data below does not include the 1948 South American Championship of Champions, as it is not listed by CONMEBOL either as a Copa Libertadores edition or as an official competition. It must be pointed out, however, that at least in the years 1996 and 1997, CONMEBOL entitled equal status to both the Copa Libertadores and the 1948 tournament, in that the 1948 champions (Vasco da Gama) were allowed to participate in the Supercopa Libertadores, a CONMEBOL official competition that allowed participation for former Libertadores champions only (for example, not admitting participation for champions of other CONMEBOL official competitions, such as the Copa CONMEBOL).

Defending the trophyEdit

Successful title-holder campaignsEdit

As of 2020, 11 of the 60 attempts to defend the trophy (18.3%) have been successful, and this has been accomplished by six clubs. Until 1999, the title-holders started the competition in the second stage (sometimes third, depending on the format). Since then, only Boca Juniors (in 2001) have defended their title in the current format, with the previous year's champions starting the tournament in the group stage.

Winning other trophiesEdit

Only two clubs have the distinction of winning the Copa Libertadores, their national league, and another domestic tournament in the same year/season, known colloquially as the treble:[T 1]

  1. ^ Note: trebles are not possible for all South American clubs since many countries do not have a domestic cup.

In addition to Santos, seven other clubs have achieved a continental double, in which a club won the Copa Libertadores in addition to their domestic league in the same year:

In addition to the double, the following clubs have gone on to win other trophies in that same time frame:

  • Peñarol won the Intercontinental Cup in 1961
  • Nacional won the Intercontinental Cup and Copa Interamericana in 1971, and the Intercontinental Cup in 1980
  • Olimpia won the Intercontinental Cup and Copa Interamericana in 1979
  • Argentinos Juniors won the Copa Interamericana in 1985
  • River Plate won the Intercontinental Cup and Copa Interamericana in 1986
  • Colo-Colo won the Copa Interamericana in 1991

AwardsEdit

From 1999 to 2007, Toyota, the main sponsor of the tournament, awarded the best player of the finals. However, in 2008, the company decided to recognize the manager, understanding that they are the main ones responsible for leading the entire team towards victory, combining concepts of reading the game, training, setting goals and strategy, until the final whistle.[8] The last Toyota award was given to Renato Portaluppi in the 2017 edition.

Besides the Toyota Awards, from 2008 to 2012, Banco Santander was the main sponsor of the tournament and elected the best player of the competition; the players awarded were Joffre Guerrón in 2008,[9] Juan Sebastián Verón in 2009,[10] Giuliano in 2010,[11] Neymar in 2011[12] and Emerson in 2012.[13]
