The 1970 Copa Libertadores de América was the 11th edition of CONMEBOL's top club tournament.

Second phase

From this phase onwards, the team that advances from groups that have two teams (including the winner of the finals) will be decided by points (two for a win, one for a draw). If after two games, no one team has the most points, a single-game playoff will be played on neutral grounds to determine who advances (or wins as is the case for the finals). If the playoff game ends in a draw, goal difference will be used a tie-breaker.
