On May 10, Soldier Field (Chicago) will host the 1/16 final match of the US Open Cup, in which Chicago Fire will compete with St. Louis City. The battle will start at 02:00 CET.
The club powerfully started its performance at one time: the debut season brought both the MLS Cup and the US Open Cup. By the way, “the Men in Red” had won the second trophy of the higher mentioned ones three times more by 2006. Then the results worsened, and the project has never played in the play-offs since 2018. No one can say that something will change even now – the team is, albeit not quite among the outsiders, but at a low position so far. There are few defeats, but draws are the most frequent results. On the other hand, Beric, who used to be the main scorer, left for China, Shaqiri is “keeping silence” this season. Xherdan did not score in the 1/32 final match, where there was a duel with the neighbouring Chicago House. Kendall Burks, a 23-year-old defender, who usually does not play much, suddenly became the hero of the match there – he made a double.
St. Louis City
The team finally made its debut in the MLS only in the current season. The franchise was officially created in 2019, but the start of its performances in the top division of the United States was postponed due to the coronavirus. As for a debutant, “the Citizens” seem to be excellent, staying among the leaders of their conference and winning a lot. Lutz Pfannenstiel is the sports director of the club and this fact explains the bet on players with the experience of the Bundesliga, such as Leuven, who was considered as a potential player for the Russian national team, and, that is the most important, the Swiss goalkeeper, Bürki, who wears the captain’s armband. And, of course, it is reasonable to mention the scorer, Klauss, although he came from Belgium, but has the experience of playing in Hoffenheim. Speaking about the previous round, the team defeated modest Union Omaha in a pretty bright manner – five goals were answered only with a ball of prestige.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Taking into account a really short history of the club from St. Louis, there is no surprise that the following match will be only the first head-to-head one.
Bookmakers are sceptical about City. It is an away match for the club and experienced Chicago Fire should win at the home arena (odd: 1.84).
