MLS: U.S. Open Cup-New York Red Bulls at FC Cincinnati Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

What a turnaround after that terrible NYC FC match. The New York Red Bulls hosted Orlando City in a game that started ugly, ended ugly, but was good enough in the middle for a 3-1 home win. There was a weird moment between Auerillin Collin and Kaka, but thankfully the Red Bulls didn’t have to deal with the fallout of it. After the win, they travelled to take on FC Cincinnati in the US Open Cup Semifinals, and it was almost a very bad night, but thankfully they pulled something out of the fire and lived to see the USOC finals. Can the Red Bulls keep it going though as they have a very short turnaround when they have to travel to a struggling Portland Timbers on Friday night.
