Copa Sudamericana will also be contested by two Brazilian teams

On its 20th anniversary, the Copa Sudamericana 2021 is about to reach its conclusion after a thrilling competition in which there were many emotions, goals and soccer. It's time for the denouement of the other half of the glory. 

In the final for the second continental club title, the surprising Bragantino from Brazil, who left Libertad of Paraguay in the road, will face Athletico Paranaense, who did the same, in Curitiba, against Peñarol.

Estadio Centenario Final Copa Lbertadores 2021

CONMEBOL has made official the date of the final of the Copa Sudamericana 2021. The match will be held next November 20 at the Centenario Stadium in Montevideo, Uruguay. A match that will host one of the most important clashes at club level and where the new champion of South America will emerge. The initial date set for the Sudamericana final to be played was Saturday, November 13, but it will finally take place a week later after being delayed by seven days. 

This is an unprecedented situation in which the same country has secured the four finalists of the two South American competitions.. There have been separate precedents, i.e., two finalists from the same country, but in a single competition. In the Sudamericana, there was the precedent of last year between Defensa y Justicia, who faced Lanús in the Mario Alberto Kempes Stadium of Córdoba and the Halcón de Varela won the first title in history.

In the Libertadores, there have been four cases, three involving Brazilians and one involving Argentines. The first final between clubs from the same country was in 2005, when Sao Paulo overcame Atletico Paranaense. In 2006, Inter of Porto Alegre beat San Pablo. In 2018 there was the historic final between River Plate and Boca Juniors, a series that was defined in Madrid. And in 2020, Palmeiras celebrated against Santos in the Maracana Stadium.
