2007 US Open Cup Third Round ends tonight

The third round of the great US Open Cup comes to a conclusion tonight as Chivas USA looks to earn back some respect for the MLS as they travel to Seattle for the second time this year to face the Sounders.

Of the seven matches already played, the MLS teams have been bested in four of them include two times against USL-Second division clubs. LA, Houston and DC were eleminated last week while Chicago was tossed 1-0 this past Sunday. If MLS wants to break even in this round, they need Chivas to pull one off in Seattle, however 6 of the 7 winners so far (and 24 of 31 over all rounds) have been the home team.

Although you will not be able to find this one on TV, if you have internet access (and I'm guessing you do), you can watch it for free thanks to USLlive. The winner of this match will face the Colorado Rapids in the fourth round.
