The 2007 Copa Libertadores Final was a two-legged football match-up to determine the 2007 Copa Libertadores champion. The series was contested between Club Atlético Boca Juniors from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Grêmio, from Porto Alegre, Brazil. The first leg of the tie was played on June 13 at Boca Juniors' home field, with the second leg played on June 20 at Gremio's.

With this appearance in the last stage Boca Juniors achieved a record-tie 9 times in the finals, winning five of the seven previous occasions. At that moment only C.A. Peñarol of Uruguay have that number of finals. In the last final of Boca Juniors they lost to Once Caldas of Colombia in 2004. In the other hand with this appearance Grêmio, who played three finals before winning two of them, became the second with most finals in the Brazilian clubs, just behind of São Paulo who had six. In 2009 Cruzeiro Esporte Clube would equal the record of four finals appearances of Grêmio.
