Olimpia had to withstand heavy pressure from a determined Santa Fe side in the second leg of their semi-final and made it through despite losing 0-1, thanks to their two goals in the first leg. Olimpia have won the Copa Libertadores on three occasions, beating Brazilian opponents Sao Caetano 2002 in their most recent triumph. Unlike their opponents on Thursday, El Decano don't have the rigours of domestic football to contend with leading up to the game and may have fitness on their side. Fredy Bareiro is one goal short of being top-scorer in the Copa Libertadores and the Paraguayan international is Olimpia's main attacking threat with five goals in the competition.
Atletico Mineiro performed a remarkable comeback in their semi-final with Newell's Old Boys, taking the game to penalties after coming back from 2 goals down in the first leg to level the tie 2-2 in the second leg. Newell's had already survived an epic penalty shoot-out with Boca Juniors in the quarter-finals, but their luck ran out as Atletico Mineiro's star player Ronaldinho scored the winning spot-kick. Galo had a game with Corinthians on Sunday and registered their third win in a row with a 1-0 scoreline thanks to a goal from Adolfo Rosinei. Former Manchester City and Everton striker Jo is currently tied with team mate Diego Tardelli for top scorer in the competition as the Atletico Mineiro pair have benefitted from Ronaldino's quality service.
