||DID YOU KNOW?|
This is the first time that Club America faces Manchester City.
- Manchester City will likely debut its two new defensive signings in Gael Clichy and Stefan Savic.
- It will be strange for America fans to not see Guillermo Ochoa between the posts, as the 26-year-old goalkeeper recently transfered to Ligue 1 side AC Ajaccio.
- Want-away City players Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor and Shay Given are the notable exemptions from tomorrow's match. Tevez is currently playing with Argentina in the Copa America while Adebayor and Given have remained in the UK.
- Former America midfielder Pavel Pardo revealed to Goal.com that he is interested in playing in Major League Soccer.
