Red Bulls Win Big Against Orlando 3-0 for Fourth Road Win

photo by Matt Kremkau

New York Red Bulls remain undefeated on the road, grabbing their fourth straight win away from Red Bull Arena with a 3-0 win over Orlando City on Sunday afternoon. Goals from Luquinhas, Cristian Casseres Jr. and Lewis Morgan contributed to a dominant road performance that has become the norm for this club in 2022.

New York opened the scoring in the 26th minute when Omir Fernandez played a ball to Luquinhas who had ample time to both set up and place a shot past the Orlando keeper. It was an example of the openness that the opposition afforded New York throughout the game, allowing them to pounce where they have been unable to at home. 

Defensively, New York was stout. Aaron Long continued his strong play both as a defender and captain. Supplemented by Sean Nealis and Tom Edwards, the Red Bulls were able to keep Orlando to limited opportunities throughout the game despite ceding possession. Overall Orlando only had three total shots while New York had 17. Many of the other stats such as passing accuracy and possession favored the home side but provided little to explain the outcome of the game.

The second half saw New York put the game away with two goals. The first was a ball played through to Casseres Jr. who took his shot and then buried the rebound to double the lead in the 48th minute. The Red Bulls confirmed a win in the 88th minute when Lewis Morgan converted a penalty opportunity following a handball.

New York continued their perfect record away from Red Bull Arena to 4-0-0 and putting the conference on notice as a difficult team to defeat. Their home record remains something to be repaired, however their ability to win on the road sees them in second place after eight games, three points back of Philadelphia for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

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

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

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
