Two spots in the U.S. Open Cup semifinals will be cemented Tuesday night, as the Columbus Crew look to avoid being upset by the Charleston Battery and the Houston Dynamo and Chivas USA do battle in an all-Major League Soccer quarterfinal.
The Battery outlasted the Chicago Fire in penalty kicks to reach the quarterfinals, but the USL-2 side will likely face a more stern test in the Crew, which has tremendous depth to go with its talent-laden roster. First kick for that match is at 7:30 p.m. at Crew Stadium (video stream live here/audio stream live here)
The Dynamo and Goats meet at 8:30 p.m. at Robertson Stadium (audio stream live here). Houston has an 11-game unbeaten streak against Chivas, which will look to advance to the U.S. Open Cup semifinals for the first time in franchise history.
If you will be watching or listening to either or both of these matches, please feel free to share any thoughts, opinions and play-by-play in the comments section below. Enjoy the games!

I was at the Dynamo game last night. It was pretty clear the Dynamo had little interest in the game or the Open cup.
65th minute. 2-0 chivas. bummer
Stu Holden doing a little commentary on the radio now…. Talking about coming back from his broken leg
never mind, they just said…. 1-0 Chivas
anyone have a score for Dynamo game? just now tuning in….
Anyone know why DC doesn’t play its quarterfinal match until July 21? Just curious.
Goal … Crew up 3-0 on goal by Gaven
Crew up 2-0 on Goal by Lenhart….. Crew will advance
Columbus up 2-0 now
Cochrane coming out for Chabala in the 35th minute for Dynamo in the back Triling 1-0 to Chivas. Now
Any word on what Kinnear will do for a lineup with Landin, Cameron, and Davis all hurt? I’m expecting Palmer, Mullan, Ngwenya, and Ashe in the MF with Weaver and Oduro up top. Any word?
Was he legitimately taken down? Ronald McDonald has a tendency to go down “Ronaldo style” often
Crew up 1-0 at halftime. Lenhart taken down in the box. Renteria finishes the PK.
Anyone know why they can’t show video? I would take a digital video camera even
Not getting any video.
