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 four rounds of the group stage already completed in this accelerated Libertadores, both Palmeiras and Atletico Mineiro have already secured safe passage to the last 16, the former with a perfect record so far. 

A whole host of teams could be joining them this week, with the likes of Flamengo, Fluminense and Argentinos Juniors needing only a draw to progress while others, such as Sao Paulo and Racing Club in Group E and Group C leaders Barcelona, can clinch their knockout place with victory.

Elsewhere, though, things look set to go down to the final day: particularly in Group B, where all four teams are deadlocked on six points so far.

It is important to remember as well that there is still plenty to play for 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.
