The 2012 Superclásico de las Américas – Copa Doctor Nicolás Leoz was the second edition of the Superclásico de las Américas. Brazil won 4–3 on penalties after a 3–3 draw on aggregate and conquered their second title.[1][2][3][4][5]

The first leg was played at Estádio Serra Dourada, Goiânia, which Brazil won, 2–1.
