What has happened so far in the 2021 Copa Libertadores?

The 2021 Copa Libertadores began less than a month after the 2020 edition came to an end with Palmeiras' narrow victory over Santos in the final, due to delays in its playing caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

On February 23 Uruguay's Liverpool met Catolica of Ecuador in the opening match of the first preliminary phase, officially kicking off the new tournament.

With five rounds of the group stage already completed in this accelerated Libertadores, nine teams can rest easy in the knowledge that their place in the last 16 is already assured: Palmeiras, Defensa y Justicia, Barcelona, Racing Club, Sao Paulo, Argentinos Juniors, Flamengo, Velez Sarsfield and Atletico Mineiro.

Only Palmeiras, Argentinos and Mineiro, though, have secured that all-important top spot which will determine knockout seedings, leaving plenty to play for even for those qualified.

And in several groups, notably Group C with giants Boca and Santos battling for the one remaining last-16 place (which The Strongest could also grab if results go their way) and B, where all four sides still have a chance to go through, the action is guaranteed to be thrilling down to the very last minute. 

One of the teams which can seal passage with a draw, meanwhile, is River Plate, who pulled off one of the most remarkable wins in Libertadores history against Santa Fe despite having to play injured midfielder Enzo Perez in goal for the entire 90 minutes due to a severe outbreak of Covid-19.

It is important to remember as well that there is still incentive left even for those teams who look set to miss out on the knockout stage, as third place guarantees a spot in the Copa Sudamericana last 16.
