Picault scores, Blake makes big saves in Union's 2-1 victory

Jack Harrison and Ben Sweat shined as they scored the only goals of the match, as Red Bull New York's lack of offensive creativity doomed them to a shutout.

That phrase usually is reserved for when the USA national team defeats Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, but this time City's fans finally had something to cheer about at Red Bull Arena: an away win. He also remains the ironman for Red Bulls, once again playing 90 minutes and overcoming a knock in the 23rd minute.

The Venezuelan was a constant presence, both turning the Red Bulls attacks away and getting into the attack.

NYCFC moved to 9-5-3 on the season and allowed it to remain in third place with 30 points, seven points clear of the Red Bulls (7-8-2, 23 points in 17 matches).

Yet there was still a lingering belief that the Red Bulls would step their game up in the derby because, well, that's what they have always done. "I believe that if you want to win football matches you have to match the competitiveness of the opposition and I think today we did that brilliantly". Conversely, the red Bulls had more total passes (213-162) and had huge advantages in passing accuracy (79-67 percent) and overall possession (57-43 percent). He had two good chances that would have turned into goals had Luis Robles not made excellent saves, and the 19-year-old was a constant presence as NYCFC poured pressure on the Red Bulls.

There was no sense of panic for the Red Bulls, with Marsch doing his best to try and downplay how thoroughly his team was outplayed on Saturday. Instead, they are treading water, and have hit the midway point in the season with more losses than wins, and only one victory against a winning team so far this season.

After dropping four consecutive matches here, NYCFC recorded an emphatic 2-0 victory before 25,219 fans in the Hudson River Derby on Saturday.

The rivalry returns to Yankee Stadium on Sunday, August 6.
