Like UEFA, Conmebol also said on Thursday that it had decided to abolish the away goal rule in all of its competitions. A measure already in force this season in all competitions led by UEFA.
Same story for the South American confederation. From 2022, on the occasion of the Copa Libertadores, equivalent of the Champions League in the continent, and for the Copa Sudamericana, equivalent of the Europa League, the away goal will no longer have the known influence until now.
The CONMEBOL eliminated the “visiting gol”. In adelante todos los goles de los torneos de la CONMEBOL tendrán el mismo valor, ya no se considerará como un factor de desempate los tantos convertidos en calidad de visitante. Con ello, se apunta a una mayor justicia deportiva.
