Uruguay won the match 3–0 to earn their 15th Copa América; Paraguay, as the tournament runner-up, earned the Copa Bolivia. With the win, Uruguay earned the right to represent CONMEBOL in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.

Their last final appearance was in 1999, when they were defeated by Brazil. Paraguay is a two-time winner of the competition, having last won the tournament in 1979.
