With the win, the Union advanced to the semifinals. They are scheduled to play Inter Miami CF on Tuesday night at 7 pm.

The Union previously defeated Inter Miami CF in June at Subaru Park. However, this is a totally different squad following the signing of Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets.

Inter Miami CF has not lost in the Leagues Cup tournament. And the Union is also undefeated, as well.

The Union will face Inter Miami CF in what will be their biggest game at Subaru Park at 7 pm on Tuesday night. Monterrey, who defeated MLS Champion LAFC 3-2 on Friday night, will travel to Nashville SC at 9:30 pm.

Regardless of if the Union defeats Inter Miami CF on Tuesday night, they will host the Leagues Cup Championship game on Saturday, August 19th. If they host the Leagues Cup Championship game, their August 20th regular season game will be pushed back to a later date.

Chris Donovan scored the game-winner. He scored in the 90th +10 mark.

Querétaro F.C. head coach Mauro Néstor Gerk was not pleased with the extra time. He thought that following the end of regulation, it would go into penalty kicks.

In the second half, Ángel Sepúlveda tied the game. Querétaro F.C. scored in the 65th minute when the Union was lackluster in their defensive effort that caused the goal.

The Union got on the board first. They went up 1-0 when Jesús Bueno scored in the 10th minute.
