Milan-Olympiacos: International Champions Cup Open Thread

Mario Balotelli and his AC Milan teammates take on Greek powerhouse Olympiacos tonight at BMO Field in Toronto at 8pm ET in the first game of the 2014 International Champions Cup.

Milan and Olympiacos are in the same group as Manchester City and Liverpool, so both AC Milan and Olympiacos will want to get a win tonight in order to gain confidence before they play the Premier League teams. The winner of Group B (featuring Milan, Olympiacos, Man City and Liverpool) will play in the International Champions Cup Final on August 4 in Miami against the winner of Group A (Real Madrid, Manchester United, AS Roma or Inter Milan).
