Players from Real Madrid and Manchester City will take part in a mini FIFA tournament set up to raise funds for UNICEF in the ongoing crisis.

Real Madrid and Manchester City recently played in the Champions League where the English champions came from a goal behind to secure a win.

Though the highly-anticipated second leg might be on hold due to the coronavirus crisis, we might still see both sides play against each other, technically.

As a means of raising funds for UNICEF to support the crisis, Real Madrid and Man City players will take part in a FIFA tournament.

Aymeric Laporte will take on Brahim Diaz in one match, while Oleksandr Zinchenko faces Thibaut Courtois in the other game.

As per Marca, both games will be broadcasted live on MARCA.com and Twitch on Friday evening.

Clubs round the world have used different initiatives to raise funds for charities in this period and this is an engaging move from both clubs that would surely give us a piece of action in a time where there’s no football.

Manchester City and Manchester United recently teamed up to feed local food banks in the City.

Real Madrid have also donated funds to the Spanish authorities and yesterday announced they were opening up the Bernabeu as a centre for storing supplies amidst the pandemic.
