  • Considering that transport is complex to return to the Hotel or place of accommodation, my suggestion is to reach agreement with taxi driver to bring you back to pick it up at a certain time and in a place specific near the stadium. My experience is based on a game of Copa Libertadores, which coordinate with a taxi driver I carry and then me out to look.
