The US Open Cup is underway, and the next round kicks off Wednesday. As the Cosmos prepare for their cup run to begin in the third round, we already know who our opponents may be. The two teams we could face are New York Red Bulls II or Jersey Express, both PDL sides that play in the Mid-Atlantic region of the league.
The NYRB II are the newly-founded reserve side of the Red Bulls. They have been okay to mediocre recently, but have had dismal fan numbers at their games. The team right now sits mid-table in the USL, and has a 2-4-3 record. They have a few Academy and MLS-loaned players in their roster.
The Jersey Express is a Newark-based PDL side that plays against the U-23 side of the Red Bulls. They've played fairly well recently in the PDL, having been crowned champions of the Eastern division last year. For more on Jersey Express, check out this link.
Date: Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Time: 8:00 pm ET
Venue: Lubetkin Field, Newark, NJ
