Boca to Libertadores Cup 2015

Nov 6. Six teams qualify for Libertadores Cup 2015. 1) San Lorenzo (champions of Libertadores 2014). 2) River (Champions of Final 2013/14), 3) Racing (Champions of Transition 2014). 4) Vélez (Best of overall standings 2013/14). 5) Huracán (Champions of Argentina Cup 2013/14). 6) Boca (Best placed in South American Cup 2014).

Vélez were the best of overall standings. Boca were the runners-up by goal difference.

Some media, even AFA, say there would be a tie-breaker between Vélez and Boca for the first place of the overall standings, although rules were very clear. First placed in the overall standings couldn't play South American Cup 2014 and Boca played it. This means that in one moment, they considered that first place belonged to Vélez.

AFA considered this as an official tournament so they added a championship to Vélez. We think that 1 or 2 games tournaments don't deserve such an honour, they are just made to inflate records. Vélez had been awarded the star after winning Initial 2012 and this game is not enough to receive another one.

Initial tournament 2013/14 start on Friday, August 2.
