Copa Libertadores betting odds
The Copa Libertadores is the holy grail of South American football. Organized by CONMEBOL, it brings together the best teams in the zone every season. This is the equivalent of the European Champions League (all bets in the Champions League). Throughout the history of this tournament, 25 teams from seven countries have won the competition.
Recommended bets on the Libertadores 2022
The final of the 2022 edition will take place in Ecuador.
The last two finals were meetings between Brazilian teams: Flamengo, Santos plus Palmeiras, the two-time defending champions. In the previous edition, the Brazilian teams outplayed all other teams in the competition. Five of the eight quarter-finalists were Brazilian. The four teams that won the most and scored the most were teams from the Brazilian Serie A. Make bets on the Serie A Brasileirao with bwin.
Traditionally, Libertadores matches are very close and tactical, which means few goals. In last season's matches, the first quarter of the game was the least prolific. On average, there were only 2.03 goals per game.
Bet on Brazilian teams in Libertadores
For the 2022 season kickoff, the three favourite teams are Flamengo, Atletico MG and Palmeiras. The creativity and dribbling quality of these three Brazilian championship teams stand out.
Gabriel Barbosa is the only player who scored at least ten goals last season in the Libertadores. The 25-year-old striker is an integral part of Seleção Canarinho (the national team) and all being well will compete with Brazil in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar (all World Cup bets).
Only one team, Atletico MG, finished the last Libertadores without knowing defeat. The new Brazilian champion, who conceded only four goals in twelve games, was eliminated with the away goals rule.
Bet on Palmeiras, the two-time defending champion
SE Palmeiras is the two-time defending champion. Their two victories in 2020 and 2021 came about in extra time. The team coached by Abel Ferreira joined Sao Paulo, Santos, and Gremio in the list of Brazilian teams with three titles in this competition.
In 54% of the games in the Libertadores this season, Palmeiras has not conceded a goal. It is a team that knows how to bend without breaking and that can hurt their opponents simultaneously.
Betting on Argentine teams
However, the Argentine teams are no less dangerous. Boca Juniors, with 6 Libertadores, and Independiente are the most successful clubs in CONMEBOL competitions, winning 18 trophies each. Independiente holds the record for the most Copa Libertadores wins with seven. Then comes the Uruguayan club Peñarol with five trophies.
River Plate and Boca Juniors also figure in the CONMEBOL rankings.
