Chicago and KC fight to advance in the US Open Cup

The final game of the fourth round of the US Open Cup will take place tonight in Chicago. After horrible rains caused the game to be called off on August 2nd, these two teams will finally get to see what they have in them.

The delay might just prove to be fantastic news for Kansas City as the rediscovered their offense over the weekend while Chicago fell in a disputed game against Chivas USA.

In an interesting twist, these two teams will face each other again just 48 hours later as the two play a MLS match on Wednesday. With the Fire now sitting two points below New York for the last playoff spot in the East, the might decide to hold back on this game or they might try to use it as a spring board from which they can forget about their recent 0-4-1 MLS slide.

You will be able to hear the match live via the MLS website.

The winner of this match will face New England in the quarterfinals.

Don't forget the US Soccer Carnival part IV.
