The Cosmos and Indy Eleven have split their season series so far, with the home side prevailing in both encounters. This will be their final regular season matchup of 2016. The all-time series is also even at 1-6-1 (W-D-L).


Unbreakable: The Cosmos defense hasn’t allowed a goal in four consecutive matches. Carlos MendesJimmy Maurer and co. last conceded on August 27 against Carolina, storming back to win 6-1 after the RailHawks struck first in the sixth minute. That’s 444 minutes without letting in a goal.

Road to The Championship: Beginning on Saturday, New York will play five of its final seven regular season fixtures away from Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium. Sitting on top of the NASL’s Fall Season and Combined Season Standings, the Cosmos took four points from their previous two road games.

Shooters: No team in the league has taken more shots than the Cosmos this season. At 358 attempts, they’re well ahead of second-place Indy Eleven (331). The Cosmos also boast the second-highest goal conversion rate in the NASL (16%).

Going for Arangol: Midfielder Juan Arango continues to top the NASL in shot attempts, taking 67 in 24 appearances. The Cosmos attack filters through the Venezuelan; he leads the team in goals (11) and chances created (35).
