Red Bulls End Their Night in Philly with Another Draw

The New York Red Bulls fell victim to another scoreless tie in Philadelphia with their 0-0 result against the Philadelphia Union. New York has tied four of their last five matches, while Philadelphia broke their five-game losing streak.
Goalkeeper Carlos Coronel rejoined the Red Bulls for his first match since going on international leave with Paraguay for the 2024 CONMEBOL Copa America. Coronel was the club's highlight, posting five saves and earning another clean sheet.

“I think we had an okay performance,” Defender Noah Eile said. “I think we gave up chances. As I mentioned before, Carlos had to make a great couple of saves. Of course, that's great that he was able to do that. We gave up on a few chances that we may not have done enough with, but the most important thing is to keep a clean sheet.”

Both sides created chances and totaled five shots on goal, but New York had 16 shots overall. The Red Bulls continue to create chances in front of the net but can’t find the back of it.

Head coach Sandro Schwarz spoke on the match:

“In the end, I would say, it's a fair result,” Schwarz said. “But after the game I had the feeling that we had clear chances at the beginning, at the end, and in the middle of the game, to win to get these three points. But what was for me very good - to try till the end to get these three points on the road.

This was very good for the mentality of the structure. This is what we need and we had chances to win clear, chances to win, and I think Philly especially at the beginning of the second out there also had some moments where they were dangerous in our box, but it's okay performance was for me was in a good way in a good direction especially after the first half against DC United last week and the result is okay, we are not now 100% happy about the result.”

Lewis Morgan was back for his second match since being away from his home country of Scotland for the 2024 UEFA Euro Cup and continued to be an essential piece of the club's lineup. More bad news follows though: the Red Bulls placed captain Emil Forsberg on the injured list with a lower leg injury. The Swedish midfielder will miss the next four weeks and at least six matches per MLS Rules, including Leagues Cup fixtures.

Next, New York will travel to Colorado to face the Colorado Rapids. This will be the first time since 2018 that the two sides compete against each other. The match will be Wednesday, July 13, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
