This album published by Nuevo Siglo for the Copa Libertadores 2011 is similar in style and design to the Copa Sudamericana 2011 album. These are the first sticker albums dedicated to these South American competitions.
The 32 teams participating to the second stage of the Libertadores 2011 (group stage) are included in the album. Santos won the cup defeating Penarol in the final with a 2-1 in Sao Paulo (Neymar 46', Danilo 68' / Durval 79') after equalizing 0-0 in Montevideo.
The album starts with the table of contents and a short presentation of the album and the competition.
The first stickers are the logo of the competition (4 stickers) and the trophy (8 stickers). The 32 teams appear with the following order: America (Mex), Argentinos Jrs (Arg), Cerro Porteno (Par), Colo Colo (Cil), Cruzeiro (Bra), Estudiantes (Arg), Fluminense (Bra), Gremio (Bra), Independiente (Arg), Internacional (Bra), Junior Barranquilla (Col), LDU (Ecu), Nacional (Uru), Penarol (Uru), Santos (Bra), Velez (Arg), Caracas (Ven), Dep.

For the first 16 teams there are 13 stickers placed on one page: the club badge, the team uniform and 11 players. With respect to the Copa Sudamericana album, there is no stadium sticker.
For the second 16 teams there are 6 stickers, with seven players (two per sticker) and one badge, placed on half album page.
