The duel marks the Brazilian team’s reunion with the fans after more than two years. This should have happened against Argentina, last month, in São Paulo, but the derby ended up being suspended.
The Arena da Amazônia should receive 14,000 people this night – 10,000 tickets were sold, 1,000 were destined for guests and 3,000 were drawn to people vaccinated against Covid-19.
The team lost 100% of use after drawing in the last round with Colombia, but remains undefeated and very close to guaranteeing the early classification for the 2022 World Cup.
To access the stadium, fans will need to be immunized against the coronavirus or have a negative RT/PCR test performed at least 48 hours before.
