In a match fit for the UEFA Champions League knockout stage, Barcelona will welcome Manchester City to Spotify Camp Nou on Wednesday for a 90-minute exhibition which you can watch or stream live on CBS Sports Network. But why are they playing? Well, it’s a non-Champions League match, a perceived friendly after the season has already started — something you don’t often see. This one, however, is more than a friendly — it’s all for charity.
Promoted by former Barça player and coach Juan Carlos Unzue, the match is to raise the highest amount of aid to fight against ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Unzue was diagnosed with ALS over two years ago. The match is set for 3:30 p.m. ET. Over 51,500 tickets have been sold, and funds will go to Fundación Luzón for ALS
