Copa Libertadores 2009 knockout stage

The last four stages of the 2009 Copa Santander Libertadores are the knockout stages: the Round of 16, the Quarterfinals, the Semifinals, and the Finals.

Format

The remaining stages of the tournament constitute a single-elimination tournament. In each stage, the teams will play an opponent in a two-legged tie on a home-away basis. Each team will earn three (3) points for a win, one (1) point for a draw, and zero (0) points for a loss. The team with the most points at the end of each tie will advance.

Tie-breaking

The following criteria will be used for breaking ties on points:

  1. Goal difference
  2. Goals scored
  3. Away goals
  4. Penalty shootout

Seeding

The 16 qualified teams in the knockout round will be seeded according to their results in the group stage. The top teams from each group are seeded 1-8, with the team with the most points as seed 1 and the team with the least as seed 8. The second-best teams from each group are seeded 9-16, with the team with the most points as seed 9 and the team with the least as seed 16. Teams with a higher seed will play the second leg of each tie at home.

Both Guadalajara and San Luis were later secured a place in the round of 16 for the 2010 Copa Libertadores.
