Orlando City SC at Chicago Fire
When: 7:30 p.m. at Toyota Park
What: U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals.
Scouting Orlando City: This USL-PRO club has already defeated the 2012 Open Cup champion Sporting Kansas City in this year’s tournament, and it would love to eliminate another MLS club. Orlando City is making a big push to become the 21st MLS club.
Scouting the Fire: The Fire’s undefeated streak continues, reaching seven matches across all competitions, with Mike Magee’s scoring streak now at six games. Off-season acquisitions Dilly Duka, Jeff Larentowicz and Joel Lindpere are starting to contribute more now also. The Fire has never lost an Open Cup match in Illinois and is 32-10-4 all-time in the USOC.
Next: San Jose Earthquakes, 7:30 p.m. July 3 at Toyota Park
