US Open Cup Semifinals

The Open Cup is coming to a close with two matches tonight to decide the finalists.

The first match finds Chicago on the road at Dallas. This is a reigniting of the Brimstone Cup, which finds Chicago doing well while Dallas has been in the dumps. With the exception of Cup games, Dallas has not won since June 25th. However, this is a Cup game so that means little. Since FCD's defense has been absent (being nice here) for a while now, they will need a big night from Eddie Johnson if they want to win. Failing that, it is going to be all Chicago.

FCD 1 - Chicago 3

The other match finds the Minnesota Thunder in LA to take on the Galaxy. The Thunder has been MLS killers. They have put down both Kansas City and Colorado. However, LA looked great on Saturday. If they get that kind of performance out of the team, it will bring an end to the boom of the Thunder. Still, the Thunder could catch LA looking.

LA 2 - Minnesota 1
