THE STAKES

The New York Cosmos look to get their first home win of the season as they take on Jacksonville Armada. The Boys in Blue are currently top of the NASL standings, with 7 points in a 2-1-0 (W-D-L) record.

The Cosmos will be looking to unlock a sturdy Armada defense that has yet to concede. Jacksonville are second in the league in possession, rarely letting their opponents near the ball.

New York will have to watch out for midfielder, Zach Steinberger, who scored in Jacksonville's road win against FC Edmonton on April 9. He was one of two players to keep the Cosmos from a clean sheet in their 4-2 win over the Armada in the 2016 Fall Season.

The Cosmos and the Armada are the only teams to have more than one clean sheet so far in the 2017 NASL Season.
