Leipzig Take Point Against Leverkusen on the Road

RB Leipzig claimed a big point on the road against Bayer Leverkusen, a team that many feel will be in the top four come the end of the season. The game was the first away from East Germany for Julian Nagelsmann's men and he felt strongly that the result was well deserved.
"Of course we would have liked to win," said Nagelsmann after the game. "If you look at the course of the game, a draw was a fair result. We started really well and deservedly took the lead but after the equalizer and the substitution to Yussi (Yussef Poulsen), we lost our handle on the game."

Leipzig was dangerous early when Emil Forsberg ran down the sideline and put a ball into the middle of the box for Kevin Kampl. The midfielder put the ball wide but set the stage for what was to come. Minutes later Forsberg made sure to not waste his chance, burying and effort past the Leverkusen keeper for the lead. 

"We started the game well and the first 10 to 15 minutes were really strong," said Forsberg. "After that we lost our control and didn't have much possession. It wasn't a good performance for us."

The 20th minute saw the equalizer from Kerem Demirbay. A shot from far outside the box hit the post and bounced past the line. Despite a dive by keeper Peter Gulacsi, there was little that could be done to stop the screamer of a shot. From there Leverkusen pushed the game but couldn't find the goal meant to win the game.

The draw keeps Leipzig undefeated during an upset weekend that saw Dortmund lose to Augsburg. Next week the team will return home to play lowly Schalke at Red Bull Arena.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
