By the luck of the draw, the Cosmos will now get a unique opportunity to knock out both rival New York MLS franchises from the U.S. Open Cup this year. The Cosmos were paired in a drawing Thursday with the Red Bulls in a quarterfinal Cup match to be played July 1 at Red Bull Arena. The Cosmos already have knocked out NYCFC on Wednesday, 2-2 (4-3), and thumped the Red Bulls, 3-0, in the same tournament last year. While the Cosmos will surely embrace this latest challenge as another opportunity to grab the local spotlight, the draw puts more public pressure on the Red Bulls than they really need at the moment. “I’m trying to stay focused,” said Jesse Marsch, Red Bulls head coach. “One game at a time here, but now that the news comes out… I watched the game last night, it was a charged game with emotion and competitiveness. We’re happy to know it’s at home, but (the Cosmos) don’t have any games until that game, and we’ve got three.”
