Will Manchester City's return to Europe be a horror show or will it be a celebratory relief with a job well done.
Mark Hughes on the game: It is one of those games where the opposition have nothing to lose,' he said as he approached his first game in charge.
'We have approached it in a professional manner. It is part of our pre-season but it has consequences for the rest of the campaign. We have travelled with a strong team and the right attitude.
'EB/Streymur have played a lot of games and will be match fit, they also have a decent home record but this, like the ones we had with Blackburn at this stage last season, is one of those games where if you played them 10 times we would win nine of them.
'We have to make sure that this is the one game where we will not be embarrassed. We don't anticipate that will be the case. We have big players and big athletes and expect to win.'
As very little is known of this team; I will just say that there is no news that any of their better players are out.
The Flock of Sheep on the side of the Hill!!!
Mark Hughes taking a strong squad across the north sea to the Faroe Islands with only really the late arrivals at pre-season training being excluded and
The magic left winger to torment the viking defence.
Never played them - so no previous stats.
Nicole Petignat (SUI) - our first female referee. Petignat lives in Watt, in the canton of Zurich, where she is a medical masseuse and lives with the Swiss referee Urs Meier.
City to be given a decent match; but their quality will tell as they aim to impress the new gaffer. EB/Streymur 0 - 2 MCFC.
Hamburg away in a pre-season friendly on Saturday 26th July at 3:30pm kick off.
