Manchester City and Bayern Munich will open today’s soccer action when they face SuperSport United and Hansa Rostock, respectively, in a couple friendly preseason matches.
Manchester City’s match with SuperSport United will be the first for the club since departing with Italian manager Roberto Mancini and hiring Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini. The match will also likely feature City’s new signings Jesus Navas and Fernandinho.
Later, the focus will switch to the Gold Cup, where the final matches of Group A will be played out.
First, Panama will face Canada, with Martinique vs. Mexico to follow. With Panama having already clinched a spot in the knockout rounds, and Canada having been mathematically eliminated, all of the focus will shift to the later match, where both Martinique and Mexico will battle it out for the advancing point(s).
