Brazil dominates competition: check out all the winners
Brazil is the biggest winner of the Women’s Copa Libertadores. There are 10 Brazilian titles, inclusive, the country comes from three titles in a row, two with Corinthians and one with Ferroviária.
Last year, with games in Paraguay, Timão beat Independiente Santa Fe, from Colombia, by 2-0 in the decision.
And speaking of Corinthians, the team is the biggest winner, alongside São José, with three titles each.
With two, Santos and Ferroviária appear. Already with an achievement, we have Audax, from Brazil, in addition to Colo-Colo (Chile), CS Limpeño (Paraguay) and Atlético Huila (Colombia).
Brazil was only left out of the final in one edition, in 2016, when CS Limpeño faced Estudiantes de Guarico (Venezuela) and won by 2-1.
It is important to highlight an asterisk in 2017, as the champion was Audax, in partnership with Corinthians. CONMEBOL recognizes both clubs as champions, so 2017 appears with two winners on the list.

Timão has big names, like the experienced players of the Brazilian national team, Érika and Tamires, but the former is injured.
On the other hand, the lateral continues to give a lot of consistency in the defensive system and even starts the offensive plays, with good descents to the attack.
In midfield, Gabi Portilho and Gabi Zanotti give the quality touch, so that up front Jaqueline Ribeiro and Adriana resolve.

However, Verdão has one of the best squads not only in the country, but in the entire continent, promising to seek its first title of Libertadores Femenina.
Among the highlights of Verdão, we have a name of weight in the midfield, composed of Júlia, Andressinha, Duda and Camila, varying some formations with Ary Borges.
In the attack, the striker of the Brazilian national team, Beatriz Zaneratto, always with the goal suit up to date.

Ferrinha’s big name is goalkeeper Luciana, always safe. In the midfield, the rotation is very interesting, and it is even difficult to mention who the main players are, since Roberta Batista rotates the squad a lot in the sector.
In attack, Aline Gomes, Laryh and Eudimilla promise a lot of speed and effectiveness to put the ball in the back of the net and guarantee the victories.

Best betting tips
It is important to emphasize that before placing any bet, it is essential to carry out analysis, in order to increase your probability of winning.
However, we can anticipate some very interesting situations facing the Copa Libertadores Feminina 2022.
The first of these, of course, is in the first phase. The three Brazilian teams are favorites, so betting that they will lead the group becomes very interesting, it is even possible to combine on the same ticket so that the three clubs are leaders, reaching odds @ 1.94.
The option per game also draws attention, betting on the victory of the Brazilians in each duel. As there is great favoritism, in many cases the quotation will be low in this market, so a good option is in HT, rooting for the Brazilian clubs to win the first half, consequently, improving the odds.
Thinking about the knockout stage, Palmeiras is the favorite until the final, no matter the opponent. On the other hand, Corinthians is the one who follows the same line, and Ferroviária only loses in favoritism in a possible semifinal scenario against Timão.
Finally, as already mentioned, the goals market is an interesting option for all games.
The cut-off score is 2.5, which must have varying ratings. As the average is above 3, whenever 2.5 has interesting odds for your profile, the bet will be valid.
When it is a confrontation between teams with very different levels, such as Corinthians x Always Ready, the one with more than 1.5 goals or even 2.5 HT, which is in the first half, also has value, since the expectation is of a rout .
