BERLIN - Bayern Munich is already through to the second round of the Champions League, and Manchester City is hoping that will help their own chances of advancing.City needs to beat the Bundesliga champions at home on Tuesday to boost its hopes of making it out of the group.A draw would still be enough for the English champions to remain in the competition if CSKA Moscow and Roma also draw at the same time.Here are some things to know about Tuesdays games:___WELL-STOCKED SQUADUnbeaten Bayern is coasting through the season despite a host of injuries that would have seriously disrupted less well-stocked rivals.Bastian Schweinsteigers return from a nagging knee problem is a timely one with Philipp Lahm, Javi Martinez, David Alaba, Thiago Alcantara, Holger Badstuber, Claudio Pizarro and backup goalkeepers Tom Starke and Pepe Reina all injured. Jerome Boateng picked up a knock in Saturdays 4-0 win over Hoffenheim but should recover to face his former side.The injuries have not hampered Bayern so far. Only three goals conceded in 12 Bundesliga games is a club record, and Bayern already holds a seven-point league lead.Weve got lots of injuries but we can still put out a top side, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.Xabi Alonso has made an immediate impact since joining from Real Madrid, Thomas Mueller is in form and Mario Goetze is displaying his vast potential in his second season at the club.With nothing but pride at stake, Pep Guardiola is likely to field an experimental side against City while conserving energy for more important matches ahead.___CITY HANGING INMan City will take heart from its 3-2 win over Bayern last season, when it ended the German sides Champions League record of 10 straight victories. Again, Bayern was already assured of topping the group and had nothing but pride to play for.City, which came from behind to edge Swansea 2-1 on Saturday, is still looking for its first Champions League win of the campaign and looks like it will exit the competition at the group stage for the third time in four attempts.Were really lucky in the Champions League because with two points and two games left we can still qualify if we win our two games, City midfielder Samir Nasri said. We need a big reaction. We need a huge performance, because a team like us cant go out in the first round of the Champions League. So we have to win this game.Roma and CSKA are both two points ahead of City, which visits Roma for its final group game.___THINKING OF HOENESSBayern hasnt forgotten former president Uli Hoeness, who is serving a 3 1/2-year sentence for tax evasion.Bayern midfielder Franck Ribery told Kicker magazine that he went to visit the 62-year-old Hoeness at the Landsberg am Lech prison in southern Germany.It was the least I could do. It was important for me, because Hoeness is still a person I very much respect, Ribery said. He did a lot for me and you dont forget that.Hoeness publicly supported Ribery when the Frenchman faced charges — of which he was later acquitted — that he had sex with an underage prostitute in 2009.Im very sad. But he made a good impression. I hope hell be out soon, Ribery said.Bayern has said that Hoeness will take a job in the clubs youth department if he secures day parole in January.___LJAJIC IN FORMWith Roma forward Adem Ljajic coming into form, coach Rudi Garcia could consider giving the Serbia international his first Champions League start in Moscow.Ljajic has made two substitute appearances in Europes elite club competition but scored in Romas past two Serie A matches.Hes on another level, said teammate Radja Nainggolan, who scored the other goal in Saturdays 2-1 victory at Atalanta. He just needs consistency and hes working really hard for that.Hes had a lot of criticism and hes always answered on the pitch. He made the difference.Ljajic was punched by his coach at Fiorentina, Delio Rossi, after protesting a substitution in May 2012. Rossi was fired, and the next season, Ljajic scored a career-high 11 goals for Fiorentina but again had problems with his coach, Sinisa Mihajlovic.Since transferring to Roma before last season, Ljajic appears to have settled down.Roma is level on points with CSKA, which it beat 5-1 in its opening match.___Associated Press writer Daniella Matar in Milan, Italy, contributed to this report.

Olivieri, at city hall to help kick off ticket sales for the Aug. 5-24 event to be held in four Canadian cities, said Wednesday that Canada has a new generation of talent on the rise that can make its name just as Sinclair did at the same event in 2002 in Edmonton. "Kadeisha Buchanan plays a different role at centre back, so she probably doesnt get the exposure of a forward who scores a lot of goals," said Olivieri, in his second year as coach of the national womens U20 side. "And (fullback) Sura Yekka is only 16. "The last player who played on the senior team at 16 was Christine. So those could be your next Sinclairs." The 2002 tournament was for under-19 players when Sinclair led Canada to a silver medal. The Canadians drew 47,784 spectators -- still a tournament record -- to Commonwealth Stadium for the final. "It was a really unbelievable event," said Carmelina Moscato, a national team defender who was part of Canadas thrilling run through the 2002 tournament. "It was something that obviously changed our lives, and probably one of the reasons I came back to play was I never really played in an adult championship, that was my only experience to draw on and I wanted to experience something of the sort again. That was a big motivating factor for me." The 2014 event will have 16 teams playing the opening round in four groups in Montreal, Toronto, Edmonton and Moncton, N.B. Canada will play its first two games in Toronto and finish off group play at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, which will also play host to the final and bronze medal games. "Its just such a good opportunity, especially being able to play games in Toronto," said Yekka, who made her debut with Canadas senior side in a 3-0 win over South Korea on Oct. 30. "Its going to be really exciting, since Im from the GTA, all my friends and family from Tornoto can come support." The draw will be held March 1 in Montreal. Canadian womens soccer is still on a high from its bronze-medal performance at the 2012 Olympics in London, when the senior national team gained national attention in aa controversial semifinal loss to the United States before defeating France to finish third.dddddddddddd The pressure is on for another medal performance from the under-20s on home turf. "The game has grown in our country, but its also grown around the world quite rapidly," said Olivieri, a former Montreal Impact goalkeeper. "The competition is fierce. "In 2002, the public awareness of the womens game was still fresh and new. It was enlightening to see how well those girls did. There are greater expectations now, especially after the success of the senior team. This should be a wonderful event." It is the first of back-to-back major FIFA events for Canada, which will host the 24-country Womens World Cup in 2015 in Montreal, Moncton, Ottawa, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Vancouver. Toronto could not take part because it is hosting the 2015 Pan Am Games. The Canadian Soccer Association is also considering making a bid for the big one -- the mens World Cup -- in 2026. Organizers feel that getting strong fan support and running glitch-free womens events could help convince FIFA that Canada is ready to put on a World Cup. The bid got enthusiastic support from new Montreal mayor Denis Coderre, the former federal Liberal cabinet minister. He encouraged the CSA to push hard for the 2026 tournament. "We have more soccer players than hockey players in Canada," said Coderre. "But we have to show we can receive (a tournament) and that we have the greatest fans, so that we can show FIFA and the world that its about time Canada received the World Cup, eventually. "We have all the ingredients. We have a perfect storm here to make it happen." Venue pack tickets, which give buyers seats at all games played at each stadium, went on sale through the FIFA.com/Canada2014 website. Packs range from $40 to $90 for all games in Edmonton (seven games including a quarter-final); $50 to $125 in Moncton (eight games including a quarter-final and a semifinal); and $50 to $120 in Toronto (seven games including a quarter-final). There are two packs available for Montreal -- a range of $50 to $125 for eight games but not the final and bronze medal games, and $65 to $165 for 10 games including the final and third-place games. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
