Copa Libertadores 2008: Groups Drawn

The groups for the Copa Santander Libertadores 2008 were drawn earlier on today in Paraguay. River have been scheduled to face Universidad San Martin (Peru), Chile 2, and Mexico 2. The last two teams have obviously not been determined yet. Depending on who they are, it could turn out to be an easier group than last year, though things could also get very dangerous: both the Chilean and Mexican league consist of powerful teams, and the group could get filled up with the likes of Universidad Catolica, America, and Toluca, just to give a few examples.

Anyway, here's the rest of the draw:

Group 1
San Lorenzo (Argentina)
Real Potosí (Bolivia)
Caracas (Venezuela)
Winner of Playoff 2

Group 2

Group 8
