Where to watch tonight’s Open Cup action, as MLSers aim to avoid upsets

2 Comments

With only two upsets occurring in U.S. Open Cup action on Tuesday night, will any of the lower-tier teams fare any better this evening?

Only Orlando City and the Charleston Battery took MLS scalps yesterday evening, and even those weren’t that shocking. Well, I didn’t think so anyway, given the dominance of Orlando City in recent years and Charleston’s prowess as one of the elite sides outside US soccer’s top flight.

But tonight there are seven Open Cup matches that could see an upset. So if that’s what you want to see, tonight could be the night.

Below we have included some snazzy links which will direct you to a live stream or live radio coverage of each game. Your welcome.
