The Philadelphia Union will continue their run in the 2012 US Open Cup Tuesday, as they host the USL Pro Division's Harrisburg City Islanders at PPL Park (7:30 p.m. ET). The winner will advance to the tournament's semifinal round to player either the MLS' Sporting Kansas City or USLP's Dayton Dutch Lions on July 10 or 11th.
Despite playing in a league rated lower than the MLS, the Dutch Lions have made a living of defeating seemingly superior opponents as they have already eliminated the New York Red Bulls and New England Revolution. Already this season, Harrisburg defeated the Union 3-2 in a friendly on June 12 at Hersheypark Stadium.
If the Union earn a victory Tuesday, they will move onto the Final Four which would feature another home match. The Union have never won a US Open Championship nor advanced this far in the annual event.
