Each country chooses its Copa Libertadores teams by itself. However, mostly they are winners of the special half-year tournaments or the national top-flight leagues. Argentina and Brazil are represented in the competition by 5 clubs, while the other countries have the quota for 3 teams only. The previous season’s winning country gets an opportunity to send one extra team to Copa Libertadores the following season. Moreover, Copa Sudamericana winner is also invited to join the tournament, but without expanding the quota for its country.

26 teams get to the tournament’s group stage directly. 12 teams first compete in the qualification stage, which is a series of the two-legged knockout ties. After that, six qualification winners join the group stage, too.

At the group round, 32 teams are divided into 8 groups of 4. Within the groups, teams meet each other twice, which results in 6 matches for every participant. The group winners and the runners-up keep competing in the playoff stage.

In the playoff, 16 best Copa Libertadores teams get numbers, which correspond to their stats (number of goals, goal difference, etc.). The team with the 1st number meets the 16th, the 2nd club plays with the 15th, and so on. Such a system is used to the very final, which is usually two-legged.
