U.S. Open Cup’s Hudson River Derby headlines This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online

17 Shares

The Hudson River Derby figured to take on a different feel in 2022 after New York City FC’s MLS Cup Final triumph in December and we are finally going to find out how different it will be when the rivals meet for the first time this year.

NYCFC face off in U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal action on Wednesday for a special chapter of their rivalry. At the moment, the rivals are the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, separated by one point, and while their Open Cup meeting won’t impact the table, it will set the tone for how the rivalry will shake out as the year moves forward.

Those looking for a cupset will want to turn their attention to Sacramento Republic, which takes on the LA Galaxy on Tuesday, and Union Omaha’s trip to Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday.

The Canadian Championship, which offers Canada’s MLS delegation a fairly direct route to the Concacaf Champions League is in the semi-final stage, with Wednesday’s Toronto FC – CF Montréal being the match to watch, as the Vancouver Whitecaps should be able to roll over York United, which is winless in its last five Canadian Premier League games, with little conflict.

There is also a pair of U.S. men’s national team U-20 matches taking place in the Concacaf U-20 championship. Paxten Aaronson and Niko Tsakiris each notched a brace in a convincing 10-0 opener against St. Kitts and Nevis on Saturday and will see a quick-turn week with Canada and Cuba on the docket Monday and Wednesday, respectively.

This Week’s Top 5 Matches to Watch


  1. New York Red Bulls vs New York City FC – The powder keg in what is shaping up to be a memorable year in the rivalry.
  2. Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha – Apologies to SKC fans but Union Omaha, a USL League One representative, will be the undeniable national favorite here.
  3. LA Galaxy vs Sacramento Republic – Stranger things have happened than Sacramento beating a potential mixed Galaxy squad, right?
  4. Toronto FC vs CF Montréal – These two should be bringing their best with the less-costly CCL bid dangling.
