New York Red Bulls 2, New England Revolution 0 | 2018 MLS Match Recap

Danny Royer and Bradley Wright-Phillips scored in the second half to lift the New York Red Bulls over the New England Revolution, 2-0, on a rainy Saturday night at Red Bull Arena.

Royer broke the stalemate in the 69th minute with his fifth goal of the season, tapping in a free kick by Marc Rzatkowski at the back post after Claude Dielna fouled Tyler Adams.

The Red Bulls No. 99 scored career goal No. 99 as Wright-Phillips latched onto a perfect service by Kaku and headed past Matt Turner to double the Red Bulls lead in the 80th minute.

It was Wright-Phillips’ 13th goal of the season and Kaku’s league-leading 12th assist.

The Revs best chance came in the 36th minute when Diego Fagundez found space down the right and sent a dangerous ball just outside the six-yard box. But Luis Robles did well to deny Teal Bunbury from point-blank range.

Three Things

  • THE BIG PICTURE: The Red Bulls continued their dominance at Red Bull Arena and deserved the three points with another strong second half, while the Revs have lost three straight games for the first time in a calendar year.
  • MOMENT OF THE MATCH: In a combative match lacking a lot of flow, it was bound to come down to a set piece and what a ball Rzatkowski played in for the game’s decisive goal.
  • MAN OF THE MATCH: Rzatkowski struck for a brace in a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Sporting Kansas City a week ago and had the game-winning assist vs. the Revs. He’s forcing Chris Armas to keep him
