U.S. Open Cup semifinals headline This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online


Sacramento Republic has enjoyed a Cinderella story in the 2022 U.S. Open Cup so far, but the USL side will need another miracle to keep alive its chances of reaching September’s final.

Standing in the way of Sacramento Republic in this week’s semifinal round is Sporting Kansas City, a four-time winner of the historic competition. Peter Vermes’ side has struggled in MLS play this season, but has found success in the U.S. Open Cup, eliminating FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo before rolling past Union Omaha in the quarterfinal round.

Mark Briggs’ squad have already eliminated the San Jose Earthquakes and L.A. Galaxy in respective rounds and will be pulling out all stops to claim the scalp of a third-straight MLS club.

In the other U.S. Open Cup semifinal, Orlando City will host the New York Red Bulls in a short week for both MLS clubs. The Lions fell 1-0 to the Philadelphia Union in league play on Saturday while the Red Bulls edged Austin FC 4-3 in Texas on Sunday.

Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps will also face off in cup action this week as BC Place hosts the 2022 Canadian Championship Final. Bob Bradley’s side rolled past Charlotte FC 4-0 on Saturday with Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi making their debuts. The Vancouver Whitecaps suffered a 3-0 home loss to the Chicago Fire.

The semifinals of the Women’s Euros also play out this week, with Tuesday’s England-Sweden contest the headliner of the two. Germany also meets France on Wednesday with a place in Saturday’s final at stake.
