Macau:

Barcelona have brought plenty of local flavour to Macau as they get ready for an exhibition match against Chinese side Shenzhen on Wednesday. The Spanish champions boast several players with Portuguese ties, a sure crowd-pleaser in Macau, itself a former enclave of Portugal on China's southeastern coast. The match will inaugurate Macau's new national stadium and give Barcelona another chance to fine-tune the club for what they hope will be a successful defence of their La Liga championship. A victory in Macau would also help erase memories of Barcelona's lacklustre 1-1 draw against J-League side Yokohama last Saturday in Japan. (AP)
