Match preview

It’s fair to say, 2022 is not going to be a year that lives long in the memory for Sporting Kansas City supporters.

The Wizards sit rock bottom of the Western Conference following last weekend’s 2-0 defeat to LAFC.

But, on Wednesday night, SKC did have the chance to save their season, facing Sacramento Republic in the U.S. Open Cup semi-finals.

Following a goalless draw at Heart Health Park, a penalty shootout was to decide the finalist.

Nine of ten spot-kicks were converted with 35 year old Graham Zusi the only man to miss from 12 yards.

So, it was the USL Championship side who progress with SKC’s hopes of a fifth Open Cup title going up in smoke.

Now, with only MLS to focus on, Peter Vermes’ side are going to really need to go on an unprecedented winning run to make the play-offs.

The same can’t be said of Austin FC who start the weekend second in the west, despite actually losing last Sunday.

The Verde and Black found themselves 4-1 down to New York Red Bulls and, despite a pair of stunners from Sebastián Driussi and then a header by Ethan Finlay, they couldn’t quite comeback.

This is the sixth time Josh Wolff’s side have trailed by 2+ goals in a game this season, only losing two of these such fixtures.

This fighting spirit is why the Texans, who only began play last year, are serious trophy contenders.

Thus, Austin FC are favourites to win this one at Children’s Mercy Park.
