4ters are set: Santos v America Nacional v Cucuta Gremio v Defensor Libertad v Boca Starting this year, there is no possibility that 2 teams from the same country can reach the final. 1) If Santos and Gremio qualify, the brackets are broken and they would have to face each other. Then, if Boca goes thru to semis they would face the winner of Nacional vs Cucuta. 2) If both Nacional and Defensor qualify, they would have to face each other in semis. Then, if Boca goes thru to semis they would face the winner of Santos vs America. 3) All 4 teams in semis are from different countries ... then Boca plays the winner of Gremio v Defensor in semis. The ideal situation is #1. Avoid the Brazilians until the final and also get rid of the trip to Mexico by default. Thoughts? PS: Anyone know what are the rules for the knock-out stages regarding accumulation of yellows? Banega has 2 yellows from the 2 games with Velez. .
