The two teams were due to clash in the first leg of the final on Wednesday evening.
Atletico Nacional joined in the chorus of tributes from right around the world with a tweet that read: “They came for a dream, they depart as legends”.
It is understood that they have asked the organisers CONMEBOL to award the tournament to the grieving Brazilian club.
There are understood to be just five survivors with players, mentors, club officials and journalists among the dead.
