New York City FC Vs New York Red Bulls: 3 things we learned – Drama, Drama, Drama

Following a busy week, New York City FC traveled to Red Bull Arena to face the New York Red Bulls for the year’s first Hudson River Derby looking to regain their form. While both teams showed quality and room for improvement, it would be the hosts who walked away with all three points.

The battle between two Eastern Conference giants was high energy from the opening whistle, just needing seven minutes for the opening goal. Héber’s early strike wasn’t enough to send New York City into the break with the lead, however, after Daniel Royer leveled the game from the penalty spot.
