Full time: Red Bulls 2, LAFC 1. Tough result for the black-and-gold, who looked like they could win it but two defensive errors cost them. Thanks for following, be sure to check out the full recap over here.
80th minute: Royer scores his second of the game after Bradley Wright-Phillips sends an unselfish pass after drawing all the defensive attention.
53rd minute: GOOOOOL LAFC! Diego Rossi with a well-timed run on Carlos Vela’s through ball. Tie game.
39th minute: Tyler Miller coughs up a rebound on a save and Daniel Roger capitalizes to score for the Red Bulls. A costly mistake.
Here’s what the Red Bulls are going with, basically a first-choice 11.
They’re facing a Red Bulls team that has had some upheaval this season, with head coach Jesse Marsch departing earlier this summer not because the team had been playing badly, but quite the opposite — he got the chance to work on RB Leipzig’s staff in Germany. So Chris Armas is the man in charge, and so far, pretty good. The Red Bulls have stumbled a bit lately, including a home loss against Columbus Crew SC last week, but that perhaps obscures the fact that they have lost just twice at home this year and are still in the Supporters’ Shield race.
LAFC dropped in the standings Saturday night from other results, from second to fourth, so a win here would vault them back up to second and bring them within three points of first place. No one said it would be easy, but LAFC don’t want to hit quicksand and find their secure playoff place may come into question in the coming weeks.
