How far will Lazio's fans travel to Atletico Madrid?
The flying distance between the Italian capital Rome and the Spanish one Madrid is 848 miles (1365km). Flights take usually just over 2 hours to cover that distance and as this is a journey between two EU countries there is no real customs control so everything should be pretty straightforward upon arrival.
Of course, for those Lazio fans with plenty of time on their hands there is the 17-hour long drive between the two capitals that will take the travellers through some of the most spectacular natural wonders in Europe. Still, 17 hours compared to just 2 makes us think that most away supporters will simply go for the cheaper and faster option of flying over to Madrid.
Atletico Madrid vs Lazio: Tickets
Our understanding is that all the tickets, both for home and away supporters had been sold already. For anyone that still wants to attend the match there could be resale tickets on places like www.biletwise.com. However, the risk of scams is high so we advise you to look for possible resale tickets with extra caution.
In the final 24 hours before kick-off many tickets for resale have appeared in platforms like X (ex-Twitter). Some of the tickets on offer are genuine but again tread with caution if you decide to offer money for any such ticket.
