New England vs Chicago Fire
This is semi finals of US open cup and nice change for Chicago to try saving a season after another poor run in MLS.It was expected from Fire to reach playoff after they brought Serbian coach Paunovic ( took gold with young Serbian national team in World Cup), but team is playing very bad season, especially when consider away games. However, they have managed to reach this level of cup without bigger problems, and rival like New England is not of the strongest in competition. They should be able again to play at least on the same level and hit opponent, which is maybe in bigger drop than Chicago.
Revolution were lucky to kick out Union after over time in last round of Cup, but they generally have many problems in play, which is reflecting on their MLS score. Losing recent two games from Toronto and Orlando where New England concede seven goals can be bad sign before this one. It is even not for sure if Revolution will aim this semi final with full power, since they are still in playoff fight at league +
