Four clubs in the Copa Sudamericana quarters shows Colombia is on the rise

Santa Fe players celebrate
Colombia's Independiente Santa Fe are the reigning Copa Sudamericana champions.

Three countries dominate this year's Copa Sudamericana, South America's Europa League equivalent.

Over the next two week, the quarterfinalists will be defined. Put together, 11 of the last 16 come from Argentina, Brazil and Colombia.

In the case of the first two countries, this is hardly a surprise. Three slots in the last 16 are reserved for Argentine teams, and four slots are reserved for Brazilians. All the clubs from these countries have done so far is beat one of their compatriots.
