The New York Cosmos will be hosting the San Antonio Scorpions tonight in a matchup of two of the premier teams in the NASL. The Cosmos currently top the NASL table, while the Scorpions lost their opener to Minnesota United before defeating Eric Wynalda's Atlanta SIlverbacks.

For the Scorpions: Bingham; Borrajo, James, Cann, Janicki; Menjivar, Restrepo, Soto, DeRoux; Hassli, Barrera.— Dave Martinez (@EmpireOfSoccer) April 26, 2014
The Cosmos are currently on a run of 357 minutes in the league without conceding a goal, two minutes short of tying the modern NASL record. That will be just one fun story o follow in what should be a very entertaining match on a cold, wet evening.
