MATCH RECAP, pres. by Provident Bank: Red Bulls Battle to Scoreless Draw in Union


The New York Red Bulls come home with a point from Pennsylvania.

New York and Philadelphia Union battled to a 0-0 draw on a steamy night in PA, as the Red Bulls extended their unbeaten run to five matches.

Each side had chances, but the two goalkeepers made big saves to keep the sheets clean.

"We had chances to win, clear chances to win," Head Coach Sandro Schwarz said. "The result is OK. We are not 100 percent happy about the result."

Carlos Coronel had five saves, with two saves in the span of seconds, to keep Philly off the board.

"He had some really great saves," Noah Eile said of Coronel. "A fantastic performance."

Coronel recorded his fourth MLS shutout of the season and the 35th of his MLS career. Coronel has recorded shutouts in back-to-back matches.

The Paraguayan international registered his 34th career shutout with New York, which ranks second in franchise history.

"We got one point," Schwarz said. "That's OK, this feeling. Our main target, our main goal, was to get three points."

Sean Nealis made his 127th MLS appearance for the club, which moves him into sole possession of fifth place in franchise history for most MLS appearances by a defender passing Connor Lade.

New York remain on the road and head to Dicks Sporting Goods Park for the first time since 2018 to battle the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, July 13.

"We have to prepare everything for a difficult match in Colorado," Schwarz said.

Kickoff is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. ET on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV in English and Spanish and New York Red Bulls Radio in English via the New York Red Bulls app and
