Boca Juniors will attempt to become only the second seven-time Copa Libertadores winners. The decorated Argentine side though will be playing in a record 12th final with only Uruguayan side Peñarol the other to reach double figures (10). However, their last appearance in 2018 ended with bitter rivals River Plate outlasting them across two legs. Boca’s latest final run has been a fascinating one to watch as they never won a single game in the knockout phase. In the round of 16, they drew both matches Nacional (0-0 and 2-2) before winning 4-2 on penalties. The same again in the quarter-finals against Racing (0-0 and 0-0) with them succession 4-1 in the shootout.
Fluminense, meanwhile, are only playing in their second final. A debut appearance in 2008 ended with LDU Quito ultimately winning on penalties. Under the leadership of Fernando Diniz, they breezed past Argentinos Juniors (round of 16), Olimpia (quarter-final) and Internacional (semi-final) with their Argentine marksman Germán Cano the competition’s leading scorer with 12 goals. Cano netted in every game from the quarter-final first leg onwards. Fluminense will be under pressure to maintain Brazil’s recent dominance as the last four editions have been shared between Flamengo and Palmeiras with two wins each.
Speaking of which, since 2019 the Copa Libertadores final has been contested under a single-match format. This also marks the Maracanã’s second staging having hosted the 2019 final. It’s also worth noting Brazil’s footballing cathedral is also Fluminense’s home.

Players you had no idea were playing in the upcoming Copa Libertadores final
Fluminense outlasted Argentinos Juniors, Olimpia and Internacional to reach a second-ever Copa Libertadores final with their first coming in 2008 when LDU Quito ultimately beat them 3-1 on penalties.
Fernando Diniz, also the current interim Brazil national team manager, can also call upon a number of experienced campaigners. Among them is the decorated Brazilian left-back Marcelo who is seeking to join the exclusive club of Champions League-Copa Libertadores winners. During an illustrious 15-year spell with Real Madrid he lifted the European Cup on no fewer than five occasions.
Felipe Melo though is a former Copa Libertadores winner. He was part of Palmeiras’ back-to-back winning teams. His only silverware in Europe came while representing Galatasaray where he celebrated three Süper Lig titles.
The same cannot be said for Ganso who never truly fulfilled his promise. Starring alongside Neymar, the native of Ananindeua was part of that exciting Santos side a decade ago, it never happened for him at Sevilla or Amiens and since then he’s been credibly plying his trade for Fluminense.
