Copa Libertadores already has 12 classified in the eighth finals. Group C and G are missing. With the first place confirmed in his key, Cruzeiro will face second place. An opponent will be known in a draw that is held next Monday at the headquarters of Connemil in Paraguay. Possible celestial opponents, six clubs have already been confirmed in the latter. Some of them are of great tradition, with the titles of the liberator in their trophies, such as River Plate (3 times champion of the tournament), Uruguayan national (3), Gromio (3), San Lorenzo (1) and LDU from Ecuador) .

Two other champions in America can be in second place: Olympique de Paraguay and Boca Juniors from Argentina.

With one round left, Olympiyah leads Group C with 9 points. Godoy Cruz-Arg and Universidad de Concepción-Chi are tied with 6 points. The Argentine team has a greater balance than Chilean: 1 and -1. By the fourth place, Sporting Crystal of Peru, with 4 points, has odds (a balance of – 4).

In the final round, Gooy and Concepcion are confronted in Argentina. Who wins will be in second place and can dream for the first if Olympias lost to Sporting Cristal in Paraguay. The Peruvian team has little chance of qualifying because they will have to shake the Paraguayan club and hope for a draw in the second game.

Boca, meanwhile, is very close to the spot, having 8 points (4) and Tolima (-3 for balance) and Jorge Wilsterman (-7) with 5 points. The difference in equilibrium leaves the Argentine club quieter in the fight for the last wave.

In the final, Boca Juniors faces Atletico-PR, who has already been ranked 9 points in Argentina. The victory leaves Bombonera's team in the top position of the group. Boca is just risking to be off if he is defeated and has a historic championship at Jorge Wilsterman x Tolima in Bolivia.

The only one who has already qualified in the second place that has not won the title of Libertadores is Emelec. The Ecuador team was in key B and won 9 points. This Wednesday, electrically won Cruzeiro from 2 to 1 in Mineirao.
