The 16 best club teams in the South America (and Mexico) were finally matched together yesterday after Wednesday and Thursday’s Copa Libertadores results completed the group phase.

The seeding system determined the last 16 draw for the Copa Libertadores with the 8 group winners facing the 8 runner ups respectively.

As a result the highlight of the draw brought Group 4 winners, Fluminense with Internacional into an all Brazil tie.

Surprisingly no Uruguayan teams managed to progress to the next round however Bolivar became the first team to qualify for the knock out stage for 12 years, their reward being a double header against the centenary, celebrating Brazilian side Santos.

Mexico has only one representative in Cruz Azul (after Chivas Guadalajara was humbled 5-0 by Deportivo Quito) they must now face Paraguay’s only team Libertad.
