Those of you anxious to get a look at Alessandro Nesta in a Montreal Impact uniform will get their wish Tuesday night at Stade Saputo as the former AC Milan defender is expected to start in the international matchup versus Olympique Lyonnais.

Nesta, who joined the Impact a little over two weeks ago, made the trip to Houston this past weekend with his new team and trained at BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday.

The veteran of 10 years with the Italian National Team played OL in the 2006 Champions League quarterfinal, winning 3-1 to advance to the semi-finals that year.

Current Olympique Lyonnais captain Cris, fellow defender Anthony Reveillere and goalkeeper Remi Vercoutre were all on the 18-man roster for that matchup at San Siro Stadium in Milan. All three have made the trip down to Montreal for tomorrow’s game.

An event of international proportions not to be missed with the debut of Italy’s World Cup winning Alessandro Nesta’s versus France’s Olympique Lyonnais!

Great seats are still available for this international matchup at just $25 or less and are available through the Admission Network or the Impact ticket offices. Hot dogs will be available for only $1 from 6 to 7:30pm.
