Copa Libertadores 2022 bracket, fixtures, schedule, dates, teams, TV and streams for Round of 16 to the final


The 2022 Copa Libertadores — the equivalent of the UEFA Champions Leagued in South America — has reached the Round of 16 stage and the bracket is set through to the final, which will be played in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The 16 best teams on the continent will go head to head in two-leg, aggregate goal series in which the team that scores the most goals advances to the next round.

What’s different this season is that after 16 years there will be no away goals tiebreaker to determine the winner in the case teams are tied on total goals scored after the end of the second match.

Instead, the teams will go straight to a penalty shootout, if necessary, in the Round of 16, quarterfinals and semifinals. Extra time would only be used in the final, if the championship match ended deadlocked after 90 minutes.

  • Round of 16: June 28-30 (1st Leg), July 5-7 (2nd Leg)
  • Quarterfinals: Aug. 2-4 (1st Leg), Aug. 9-11 (2nd Leg)
  • Semifinals: Aug. 30-Sept. 1 (1st Leg), Sept. 6-8 (2nd Leg)
  • Final: Oct. 29

Copa Libertadores 2022 Round of 16 schedule


The Round of 16 draw was held on May 27 and it paired the eight group winners with eight group runners-up.

There were no rules preventing teams from the same country or from the same group being drawn together. It’s the reason we have Argentine teams River Plate and Velez Sarsfield facing off, as well as Talleres and Colon. Meanwhile, Boca Juniors and Corinthians will go head-to-head despite meeting in the competition’s group stage.

The group winners host the second leg, a perceived advantage given that a potential tiebreaking penalty shootout would be held on home turf.

Copa Libertadores 2022 teams

The top two teams in each group advanced to the knockout rounds, making for a total of 16 clubs in the Round of 16. 

Defending champions Palmeiras, hailing from Brazil, are again a top contender in the competition, along with a number of other strong Brazilian clubs. A team from Brazil has won the title 21 times in the competition’s history, including eight of the last 12.

Argentine clubs have also done well historically, with 25 total titles, but the nation has only collected three championships across the last 12 editions.

Both Argentina and Brazil are represented by six clubs in the 2022 knockout rounds. However, there are two all-Argentina matchups in the Round of 16, ensuring only a maximum of four Argentine clubs can advance to the quarterfinals. All six Brazilian teams can potentially make it to the final eight since they happened to be kept apart in the Round of 16 draw.

Where is the Copa Libertadores final 2022?

The 2022 Copa Libertadores final will be a single match held at the Estadio Monumental Isidro Romero Carbo in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The stadium is currently referred to by its sponsorship name: Estadio Monumental Banco Pichincha.

The stadium is the regular home venue for Ecuadorian club Barcelona SC. 

Built in 1987, the stadium has a grass pitch. Pele attended the stadium’s inauguration, and a quote attributed to him comparing the stadium to the famed Maracana in Brazil is enshrined in a plaque inside the venue.

Since 2019, the Copa Libertadores final has been held as a single-match event, a change from the old two-leg final format. If teams are tied after 90 minutes, extra time and a penalty-kick shootout would ensue to determine a winner.
