I remember the old Libertadores format 2 teams per country. Which then had to eliminate each other at quarter finals I think... I do agree with the conversation. Also the number of spots each country gets should be changed..... Most countries now have an Apertura and Clausura.. give each country 4 spots per year to which the Champs and runner up of Apertura and Clausura go.. 40 teams without Mexico or 44 with Mexico.. include Mexico if that's what they want... (10 S.A. teams and Mexico) Sudamericana make it 2 teams per country the 3rd place in apertura and 3rd place in clausura... Basically Libertadores becomes more important with more teams and by having 4 teams in it you get your Bocas and Rivers and Sudamericana is for the smaller teams to get a chance to get some international glory..
