With City kicking off their 2016/17 preparations against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, we thought it the perfect time to take a pictorial voyage through some of the best moments from recent exhibition matches.

GAZ BAZ: Gareth was on the scoresheet in a memorable 2-0 win over Valencia in 2010.
REMEMBER THE NAME: Yaya Toure scored for Olympiakos against City back in 2005/6. It wasn't his last goal at the Etihad...
