The two-leg ties will be played on May 2nd and 9th. The match-ups are as follows:
A: Caracas (Venezuela) v. Santos (Brazil)The quarter-finals are set up so that the winner of game A plays the winner of game H, B versus G, C versus F, and D versus E. As you might of noticed, the round of 16 will pit Boca against Velez, and thus, both Miguel Angel Russo and Ricardo La Volpe against their former teams. Funny how that happens.
B: Defensor Sporting (Uruguay) v. Flamengo (Brazil)
C: Parana (Brazil) v. Libertad (Paraguay)
D: Cucuta (Colombia) v. Toluca (Mexico)
E: Necaxa (Mexico) v. Nacional (Uruguay)
F: Velez Sarsfield (Argentina) v. Boca (Argentina)
G: Gremio (Brazil) v. Sao Paulo (Brazil)
H: Colo Colo (Chile) v. America (Mexico)
Guillermo Barros Schelotto will be honored before Boca's game on Sunday against Racing. The tribute, as well as the match, can be seen on FSC, Sunday at 5pm ET. It'll be shown live, at 3pm ET, on Fox Sports Espanol. Schelotto is expected to return to the U.S. on Monday and train with the Columbus Crew next week.
