The US Open Cup, many of the MLS teams don't care about it. Short explanation on this pick, Red Bulls are sending very small group to Chicago entirely of reserves and youngsters. In the previous round Red Bulls used again quite weakened selection (still 2-3 basement players featured to help, Agudelo also played but he's also missing now) and won 2-1 over FC New York at home which meant exactly nothing as FC New York are 3rd divison team average even on their own level.
Fire are declaring interest in winning The Cup, interim coach Frank Klopas said he's likely to field his regular lineup and almost no changes expected compared with the starting eleven against Galaxy. Odds for Chicago are simply too big to be missed, no clue why they even rised a bit.
