On Sunday, Real Madrid will hold the tenth annual Corazón Classic Match, a charity legends game benefiting the Real Madrid Foundation and their humanitarian efforts.
And this year’s opponents will be none other than Chelsea (Legends!).
Real’s veterans and legends have won all nine previous editions, including last year’s 2-1 triumph over Arsenal. Previous opponents also included AC Milan, Bayern, Manchester United, Juventus, Inter, Liverpool, Ajax, and AS Roma.
This year’s match will kick off at 7:30pm local time (18:30 BST), and will be shown live on Chelsea TV — but it won’t be free yet (the channel only goes free on June 30). You’ll need to be a subscriber to watch it on the website or through Sky, or you can pay 99p on the 5th Stand App (with proceeds donated to charity).
As per the official Chelsea website, here are the Chelsea legends set to participate in tomorrow’s game:
GOALKEEPERS: Hilário, Carlo Cudicini
DEFENDERS: Frank Sinclair, Juliano Belletti, Franck Leboeuf, Marcel Desailly, Danny Granville, William Gallas, Celestine Babayaro, Ricardo Carvalho
MIDFIELDERS: Claude Makélélé, Eddie Newton, Dennis Wise, Gus Poyet
FORWARDS: Andriy Shevchenko, Gianfranco Zola, Eidur Gudjohnsen, Tore Andre Flo
Should be fun to see lots of familiar faces, not to mention current and future Chelsea staff members!
Wonder if Eden Hazard will be in attendance?
