The surging Red Bulls continued their unbeaten run with a 1-0 win, this time at home against an Inter Miami team looking to kick start a playoff run. New York have not lost in the last 6 games with 4 wins and 2 draws.
A key factor in the run has been the form of striker Patryk Klimala who scored the game winner in the 25th minute. Andrew Gutman intercepted an errant pass in midfield and immediately found Klimala with an exceptional pass at the top of the box. Klimala’s finish was cool and composed, befitting of a player in form as he slotted the ball to the left of the goalkeeper.
Despite a few more chances, that goal remained the difference as RBNY’s defence held firm to register a 10th clean sheet of the season.
In this week’s Game Understanding, we’ll be looking at the buildup to the goal however short it may have been.
