Tickets for the friendly between Argentina and Italy are now on sale. The game is set to take place at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Friday 23rd March (19:45 local time, 20:45 CET). Tickets for all of the stadium’s sectors are available on www.seetickets.com (click here).
It will be Italy’s first ever game in the stadium that usually plays host to Manchester City’s home games. The Azzurri last played in Manchester on 19th June 1996, when they drew 0-0 against Germany at Old Trafford during the 1996 European Championship and were knocked out at the group stage as a result.
It will be the 15th encounter between the two teams: Italy have picked up six wins, five draws and three defeats. One of those defeats came in the friendly arranged in honour of Pope Francis on 14th August 2013. On that occasion, Argentina won 2-1 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with goals from Lorenzo Insigne, Gonzalo Higuain and Ever Banega.
