      What are the incentives for winning the brasileiro are they great or is it all about qualifying for the Copa liberatores

        well, there’s no tournament sponsor and as far as i’m aware, no incentives for clubs to finish as high up the table as possible. i’d also say that most clubs are quite satisfied with just getting into the top four and the Libertadores places.
