Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live It may seem strange to pick Omaha to win in regulation time, but if any lower division team can eliminate their MLS counterpart in the quarterfinals, these guys have a better chance of doing so. They have had a great run in the Open Cup this year, defeating the Des Moines Menace 2-1 in the second round, followed by eliminating MLS’s Chicago Fire on penalties in their third-round clash. They defeated fellow USL1 team Hailstorm FC with a score of 2-0 in the Round of 16 while defeating another MLS team Minnesota United with a final score of 2-1 in the Round of 16.
Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live Omaha hasn’t been dominating their MLS opponents by any means, as shown in their win against Minnesota, as they controlled just 26 percent of possession and made half as many shots as the Loons, but they’ve been making work in any way. Sporting Kansas City, historically one of the best teams in MLS over the last decade, is having a tough time this season so far. They sit 12th in the Western Conference with just four wins in the 17-game season. Peter Vermes’ team has only won twice in its last 12 straight MLS games, which includes a 7-2 thrashing at the hands of the Portland Timbers on May 14.

Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live Just three more wins. That’s all it takes for one of these two teams, or the remaining six teams, to lift a trophy at the 2022 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. It’s the first version of the tournament after 2020 and 2021 were canceled due to COVID. Sporting Kansas City will host (that doesn’t seem fair) USL League One side Union Omaha (which has at least 700 fans traveling to the game). They are one of two remaining lower division sides and the only one from one of the third divisions in the United States of America.
Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live The quarterfinal rounds will be played primarily on Tuesday and Wednesday with the final match to be played a week from Wednesday in Orlando. The teams that advance will then be drawn again on June 23 to find out who will host the rest of the way.
Sporting KC, being a top-ranked MLS team since 2021, entered the Fourth Round of the Cup (all but eight teams entered the third round). They had a comeback victory against FC Dallas before defeating the Houston Dynamo, with both games at home.
Union Omaha had a more difficult road entering the second round. They defeated reigning USL League Two champions the Des Moines Menace before beating the Chicago Fire (MLS), and then League One team Northern Colorado Hailstorm. After that, they dispatched Minnesota United in the round of 32.
Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live Prediction
Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live Omaha is two divisions below Sporting KC and their IIs play them regularly in the preseason (Omaha is 1-0-1 all-time against SKC II). However, as anticipated on the podcast, they play a style that’s hard to break and look to hit the counter. That is exactly where Sporting KC is the weakest.

Sporting Kansas City vs Union Omaha Live I just have to think that SKC will be ready for this game as it’s possibly the only trophy they have a legitimate shot at in 2022. But I’m nervous, and you should be too.
While Sporting owns four US Open Cup titles in team history, tied for the most among MLS teams, as champions in 2004, 2012, 2015, and 2017, Union Omaha is doing the team debut in the US Open Cup in the club’s third season. Union Omaha opened their Cinderella run with a 2-1 win over Des Moines Menace in the Second Round before going on a three-straight upset streak: they eliminated four-time champion Chicago Fire FC in a Third Round penalty shootout, eliminating Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC by a score of 2-0 in the Round of 16 and dispatching a second-placed MLS team with a 2-1 win at Minnesota United FC in the Round of 16.
Union Omaha is the first team from Nebraska to reach the US Open Cup quarterfinals in the tournament’s 107 all-time editions and the first third-division team to advance to the tournament’s final eight since 2013.
