Argentina will face Brazil at the Maracana Stadium in a World Cup 2026 qualifier in November.
The reigning World Cup winners will return to the Maracana for the first time since winning the Copa America 2021. The Brazilian Football Federation has already decided that the match will be played at the stadium on November 21. Brazilian football president Ednaldo Rodrigues said the following:
“The choice of many places where such a match could be held was made not only because of logistical, training and travel conditions, which are a priority but also because it is the assumption of our management to bring the national team closer. for fans in all regions of Brazil.
“CBF has received invitations from several places in Brazil and around the world to organize one of the biggest derbies in world football. We’ve already got a game in the North, soon in the Midwest and then it’s the Southeast.
And so we will continue and always respect the ideal conditions for the best performances of the Brazilian team. I am sure that the most famous stadium in the world will be the scene of a great football party.”
