Everton and Liverpool fans are going head to head in the Battle of the Beards
The Merseyside derby takes place on Wednesday night as Liverpool and Everton clash
And fans of both sides are being encouraged to go and get a Benitez or Klopp-style beard for the match.
And supporters can go to get one of the managers’ trims free of charge on a “first-come-first-shave basis”.
Those who are braving the beards have affectionately been labelled the ‘Rafa’ goatees and ‘Kloppelgangers’.
With the “Battle of the Beards” falling on December 1, Prime Video have also pledged to donate to Movember.
Movember aims to raise awareness for men’s health issues including mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Everton head into the game having not won a home Merseyside derby since they beat Liverpool in October 2010.
Since then their only victory from the last 24 meetings between the sides came back in February when they won 2-0 at Anfield.
Benitez heads into the match against his former club under a great deal of pressure.
His side have not won any of their last seven games, a run which stretches back to the end of September.
And they now face a tricky set of fixtures as they prepare to play Liverpool, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Leicester.
Everton sit 14th in the Premier League table just six points above the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, their rivals Liverpool are chasing down leaders Chelsea after they closed the gap to just two points over the weekend.
