D.C. United at Chicago Fire in U.S. Open Cup semifinal action, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Toyota Park


Scouting D.C. United: United has had an absolutely awful MLS campaign, but it can claim a little self-respect by beating the Fire to reach the Open Cup final. Forward Luis Silva has been productive since arriving from Toronto. Coach Ben Olsen said Joe Willis will get the start in goal over Bill Hamid.

Scouting the Fire:The Fire is undefeated in its last three matches, and it has a strong history in the Open Cup. Mike Magee is having the best season of his career, and midfielder Patrick Nyarko is playing very well also. The winner of this match will play at either Real Salt Lake or Portland.

Next:Montreal, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Toyota Park
