New York Red Bulls Last MLS Match Highlights vs. Atlanta United

Philadelphia Union will travel to Harrison, New Jersey Saturday to face New York Red Bulls. As kickoff gets closer, we take a look at how Red Bull did in their last MLS matchup against Atlanta United. 

The Red Bull's traveled to Mercedes-Benz Stadium where they faced Atlanta United in a controversial 3-1 victory, earning their third road win of the 2018 campaign. Atlanta got on the board first with a breakthrough goal from Ezequiel Barco in the 26th minute. 

The match quickly turned upside down in the 42nd minute of play when Red Bull's striker Bradley Wright-Phillips drew a foul within the box for a penalty. Midfielder Daniel Royer successfully converted the penalty kick for Red Bull bringing the sore 1-1 just before the half. After video review was utilized to overturn a red card issued to Atlanta's Jeff Larentowicz, the Five Stripes could not regain their momentum. 

In the 51st and 55th minute, Wright-Phillips earned a brace and Atlanta found themselves in a 3-1 deficit. Then in the 71st minute after RBNY's back-to-back goals, Atlanta's Greg Garza was issued a red card forcing the team to play with ten men for the remainder of the match.

With the 3-1 win over Atlanta United, Red Bull sits in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 21 points. Fans can tune in to watch the Union take on RBNY in a classic rivalry matchup at Red Bull Arena at 7 p.m. ET on PHL17.
