It was billed as a highlight of Rivalry Week, but the New York Red Bulls proved #NYisRED with a dominant 7-0 thrashing of host NYCFC at Yankee Stadium on Saturday.
The match was one-sided from the very beginning, with Dax McCarty heading home from Sacha Kljestan's third-minute corner. A Bradley Wright-Phillips brace at the end of the first half sent the visitors into the interval with a 3-0 advantage, but the onslaught did;t stop there.
McCarty stooped low to head home another Kljestan set piece in the 51st minute before substitutes Alex Muyl (56), Gonzalo Veron (83) and Gideon Baah (89) wrapped up the victory.
The Red Bulls jumped into third place in the standings with the triumph, one point behind NYCFC and two points behind league-leading Philadelphia Union who have played two fewer games.
