In the last hours, the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol), defined modifying the so-called “away goal” that adds more points, so that now all goals will have the same value, directly affecting the Copa Sudamericana and Libertadores.
In this sense, the president of the institution Alejandro Domínguez affirmed: “La Conmebol eliminates the away goal. From now on, all the goals of the Conmebol tournaments will have the same value, the many converted as a visitor will no longer be considered as a tie-breaking factor. With this, it is aimed at greater sports justice ”, he reported on his social networks.
In addition, they also changed the form of round-trip finals, as was the case between River Plate and Boca, in 2018, which was the last match that took place in that modality.
“Conmebol decided this year to play the finals of the Sudamericana and Libertadores in the same city. In order to prioritize and make South American women’s football visible, we resolved that the final of the Libertadores Femenina also be played in this city. It is not only a historical repair with women’s football, but also a coherent action with our objective of consolidating South America as a world power in this modality, just as we are in the men’s branch ”, they commented from the entity.
