The Red Bulls came close to being eliminated by this year’s surprise package in the semi-final. FC Cincinnati were 2-0 up with 15 minutes to go but a late comeback, followed by a Bradley Wright-Phillips winner in extra-time earned the Red Bulls their ticket to the final.
Wins over New York City FC, Philadelphia Union and the New England Revolution preceded that semi-final victory. The Red Bulls know they are the underdogs for Wednesday night’s game. But as we all know, anything can happen in a final.
There was a time not so long ago that the U.S. Open Cup was an afterthought, a nice trophy to win for a Major League Soccer club but nothing compared with the league’s MLS Cup. That’s not how MLS teams Sporting KC and the New York Red Bulls have treated it. And perhaps more than any other reason, that’s why the two will meet Wednesday night to decide the nation’s oldest ongoing soccer competition in Kansas City.
