The Cosmos managed a big 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Silverbacks last weekend to get their season back on track. Tonight, they'll take on one of their traditional rivals as they hope to keep themselves in the forefront of the playoff chase.
Gio Savarese has decided on a lineup that's relatively similar to last weekend, running the following group out there to start Saturday night's game:
