The New York Red Bulls became the first MLS club to win their first four road matches since 1998, with a 3-0 victory over Orlando City SC on Sunday afternoon.
The Red Bulls opened the scoring in the 26th minute, when midfielder Lewis Morgan played a ball down the left sideline for midfielder Omir Fernandez, who then slotted a ball across Orlando’s eighteen-yard box. The ball found the foot of Luquinhas, who’s shot attempt found the bottom left corner.
New York doubled their lead in the 48th minute, when Fernandez played forward Ashley Fletcher through between the Orlando City centerbacks and Fletcher layed a ball off to Cristian Cásseres, Jr., who’s first attempt on goal was blocked, but he finished the rebound.
The Red Bulls added a third goal in the 88th minute, when New York were awarded a penalty kick, where Morgan stepped up and scored the penalty with his left foot.
The Red Bulls became the third team in MLS history to win its first four road matches of the season and the first since the Los Angeles Galaxy in 1998.
New York has scored 11 goals on the road this season, which is tied for first in MLS.
Following Sunday’s match, New York heads to Solider Field to battle Chicago Fire FC on Saturday, April 30. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on MSG, MSG GO and New York Red Bulls Radio in English and Spanish via TuneIn, the New York Red Bulls app and NewYorkRedBulls.com.
