The New York Red Bulls finally put together a performance that was worthy of the scoreline as they ended their ten-match winless streak by soundly defeating Inter Miami CF, 4-0

The Red Bulls put those hosts on their heels early and often by pressing anyone wearing a black kit with the ball. Often at times, they would wind up being the beneficiaries as they unleashed 27 shots, with 9 on target at the Inter Miami defense.

At one such instance, Patryk Klimala was tripped on the play initially, but immediately got up to continue the attack caught Inter Miami goalkeeper Marsman off his line, and shot the ball to the empty net, but Makoun was able to scramble down the field and extend his left leg as he slid, clearing the ball just before it went over the line. 

The Red Bulls would be rewarded for their great start as Patryk Klimala would not be denied in the 18th minute as took a great pass from Wiki Carmona on the break and scored his 6th goal of the season, putting the visitors ahead, 1-0

Thomas Edwards throwing the ball in play, it wound up bouncing around the box, while the Inter Miami defenders nearly stood still for some unexplained reason, Omir Fernandez was able to get to the ball and headed it in the net from close range for his first of the season to put New York up by two in the 31st minute.

While the Red Bulls were exhibiting their offensive prowess firing on all cylinders by pressing all over the field, Inter Miami was exhibiting disciplinary problems will miss the next match after picking up ill-advised yellow cards, and Nicolás Figal was ejected from the match after earning his second yellow of the match in the 38th minute. 

In the second half, the Red Bulls were not going to sit back with a two-goal lead. Instead, they continued to press the attack. Fabio nearly put New York up by three when he was able to get his foot on a cross with a bicycle kick, but the ball whistled high and wide to his left.

But he would not be denied, off a set-piece John Tolkin served a perfect ball over to an unmarked Fábio, and he headed the ball off the post and in the back of the net to put the Red Bulls up by three in the 65th minute, once again taking advantage of Inter Miami's extremely poor set-piece man-marking.

Fábio would then get his second goal of the evening in the 89th minute, finishing off a header served by Kyle Duncan, who delivered a pin-point perfect cross, finishing a rare foul-goal evening for the visitors.

With their second road victory in the bag, no longer tormented by a winless streak was finally put to rest making for a very happy trip back to Harrison as they face New York City FC starting on Wednesday night.

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.

Ex-Red Bulls Coach Gerhard Struber Shares Thoughts on MLS and Salzburg

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
