International Friendly Italy v Brazil will be played at Stade de Genève (Switzerland) on  21st-March-2013.

Brazil and Italy are the two most triumphant countries in worldwide soccer, having won a joint nine World Cups. But it's far from a one-sided series. The Italians have defeated Brazil in some big matches, including in the semifinals of the 1938 World Cup in France (which Italy went on to win).Perhaps the best contest between the two came at the 1982 World Cup in Spain, where Italy defeated Brazil 3-2 in a thrilling, classic encounter that many observers consider the best game in World Cup history. In Fifa ranking Brazil is in 18th position with 908 points and Italy standing on Number 5th spot with 1173points.
