Conmebol eliminated the rule that gives double value to the away goal


The last time that Conmebol was played without the away goal worth double was in 2004 and Boca lost on penalties with Once Caldas

The decision will be implemented from the next competitions in 2022 and will not modify the definition of the final this Saturday between Flamengo and Palmeiras, which on the other hand will be played in neutral terrain, at the Centenario stadium in Montevideo.

Thus, from now on, in front of a round trip in a continental tournament -Libertadores, Sudamericana and Recopa- equalized in goals will continue with the definition by penalties as happened until the 2004 edition, in which Once Caldas was champion on penalties after drawing without goals with Boca in La Bombonera and then 1-1 in Manizales.

Conmebol’s measure was maintained in the same vein as UEFA, who also announced the elimination of the away goal for their competitions.
