Marco Asensio Wins The Laliga Santander Challenge For Real Madrid

 The #LaLigaSantanderChallenge brought together 18 LaLiga Santander clubs, each represented by a top-tier player, over the weekend to compete in an unprecedented tournament centered around FIFA20, the popular EA Sports soccer simulation game.

A total of over €140,000 (R2.6 million) was raised which will go to UNICEF to help in the battle against coronavirus.

The objective of the tournament, devised by Spanish video game influencer Ibai Llanos, was to raise funds for UNICEF and its fight against Covid-19. By the time the tournament ended more than €142,000 (R2.6 million) had been raised, a figure set to grow even further thanks to donations still to be received.

Marco Asensio's Real Madrid were crowned champions of the #LaLigaSantanderChallenge after beating CD Leganés in an exciting Madrid derby final. The Real Madrid forward made it clear that he has as much control of the ball behind the controls as he does on the field.

The one million spectators who followed the live tournament action also showed great generosity by donating over €40,000 (760 000) a sum which has been added to the €100,000 (R1.9 million) donation from LaLiga and Santander bank.
