The 1968 Copa Libertadores de América was an football competition contested between the top clubs of the CONMEBOL federation. Estudiantes de la Plata won the competition defeating Club Nacional de Football 4–0 on points over two-legs. The CBD declared that no Brazilian club would play in the 1969 Copa Libertadores de América, since Brazil disagreed on the format of the tournament, whose dates would conflict with the preparation of the national team for the 1970 World Cup Qualifying matches.[1]
