A few days ago, Boca obtaining the Diego Maradona Cup, which granted a place for Libertadores 2021, had changed the fortunes of several clubs. And this saturday when Defense and Justice screamed champion of the South American Cup the one that received great news was San Lorenzo.
Boca, which was already classified for being the champion of the 2019/20 season, River, Racing and Argentinos were in the group stage before football resumed. To them, after the completion of the local tournament, Vélez joined the group stage, which was going to play the Previous Stage Stage 2.
That vacancy, then, passed into the hands of Defense and Justice. But Florencio Varela’s team entered the group stage directly after winning the Copa Sudamericana.
Thus, the one who was waiting in line was San Lorenzo, who was going to play the Sudamericana and will now be the Argentine representative in the Previous Stage Phase 2.
Among the names of those classified for the Copa Sudamericana are now added Arsenal and Independiente, who finished 12th and 13th respectively in the general table of the 2019/20 season, which added the points of the Superliga that Boca won plus those of the first date of the suspended Super League Cup. In addition, there were already Newell’s, Talleres, Lanús and Central.
Banfield, after losing the final to Boca, will not play any international cup this year. He will have the consolation of playing a match with Vélez, the last of the Diego Maradona Cup, to determine a qualifier for the 2022 South American Cup.
