Miami FC vs. New York Cosmos: Previewing the Match

It shouldn’t have to be said that Miami’s recent form is impressive. No losses in their last 12 matches across all competitions and statement wins including 4-0 and 3-1 tallies against Jacksonville and Orlando, respectively. The next challenge that awaits is the quintessential thorn in the Miami FC side: none other than the New York Cosmos. New York comes into the match tied for second in the NASL table, seven points behind Miami. In the five league matches so far between the two squads, the Cosmos have been able to take 12 points from Miami, with the Blues lone win spoiling New York’s opening night at MCU Park this season. In the highly anticipated clash of the old guard vs. the new guard, potential spring championship implications are at stake.
