The 2022 South American Cup will come to an end this Saturday with the final between Independiente del Valle and Sao Paulo in the city of Córdoba, Argentina.
Both teams reached this instance after traveling different paths. Sao Paulo started directly from the group stage in which they came first in their bracket, while Independiente del Valle arrived six games ahead from the 2022 Copa Libertadores.
The striped ones were third in their group of the Libertadores and for that reason they reached the round of 16 of the South American, directly, to eliminate in that instance the Deportivo Táchira of Venezuela.
Now that they are in the only game, the two know that in this final more than just a new title is at stake.
The three benefits that Independiente del Valle will obtain if they win the 2022 Copa Sudamericana
If they win the final of this tournament, Independiente del Valle will become the new monarch and will achieve their second title in the last three years. The first was in 2019, when he defeated Colón de Santa Fe 3-1 in the final.
The second benefit that he will achieve by raising the trophy is a prize of 5 million dollars that, added to another 5 million accumulated for what was done in the group stage of the Libertadores and in the previous stages of the South American, reaches 10 million per two Conmebol tournaments played.
The third benefit is to secure a place in the group stage of the Copa Libertadores 2023, in which a minimum of 3 million more will be guaranteed, apart from playing the Recopa Sudamericana next year against the monarch of the Libertadores that will come out of the winner between Athletico Paranaense and Flamengo.
For playing this Recopa match, Independiente ensures at least 500 thousand dollars more. (D)
