The initiative has been inspired by City central defender Aymeric Laporte in tandem with former Etihad Stadium team-mate Brahim Diaz, who is now part of the Real Madrid’s first team squad.
Aymeric will link up with defensive team-mate Oleksandr Zinchenko to represent City while Brahim will line up in opposition alongside Real goalkeeping colleague Thibaut Courtois.
As well as bragging rights, there’s a much more important aspect to the challenge with both Aymeric and Brahim and their colleagues seeking to raise money, through UNICEF, to aid in the worldwide effort to tackle the COVID-19 virus.
Aymeric and Brahim are asking people to make donations to aid in this vital work through the following UNICEF link.
The game will be streamed live this evening 8pm time in the UK on a specially created Twitch channel and you will be able to watch all the action here https://www.twitch.tv/brahimlaporte
