The Red Bulls couldn't secure a victory as they played New York City FC to a draw in the NY Derby, 1-1, at Red Bull Arena Friday night. 

The visiting NYCFC got on the scoreboard first as David Villa found Maxi Moralez in the box to score in the 56th minute. It was Moralez's fourth goal of the year. 

However, the Red Bulls would tie things up after Sacha Kljestan earned a penalty kick in the 70th minute. Gonzalo Veron would convert the shot to tie the game up.

The Red Bulls were beaten in the 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs before they stepped on the field.

There is no way the front office could have known, neither could have Jesse Marsch. The players certainly didn't know, but that doesn't make it any less true. The Montreal Impact knew how they were going to beat the Red Bulls, and they were built this season to execute it. 

"We knew they're a weak team in the playoffs," Ignacio Piatti, a striker for the Impact told reporters after the match. "They showed that last year, this year."

The New York Red Bulls are built on a pressing system. It is controlled chaos that works to exploit teams by catching them off guard when they turn the ball over, especially close to the opponent's goal. The Red Bulls have employed this system for two years, presenting plenty of opportunities for teams to learn how to neutralize it.

Despite scoring 61 goals during the regular season and featuring two of MLS' best attacking players, the New York Red Bulls were unable to put forth a strong offensive effort in the 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs. 

In their 3-1 aggregate loss to the Montreal Impact, they failed to live up to their regular season form and be the more proactive team over two legs.

In a sense, New York controlled the second leg at Red Bull Arena. They had the edge in shots, 17 to 7, and possession, 65 percent to 35 percent.

Despite the transfer window being closed, the New York Red Bulls are looking at potential roster additions. Red Bulls Communications Specialist Eric Giacometti reported that there are two players on trial from the sister club in Brazil.

Joao Gabriel is a 20-year-old striker who had a successful stint with Cruzeiro's Under-20 team. Perusses is a 20-year-old fullback who is on RB Brasil's senior team.

Both striker and fullback are a position of need for the Red Bulls. The club has yet to find a suitable backup striker, with Gonzalo Veron being forced to the wing during infrequent appearances, short-term loanee Omer Damari constantly injured, and Anatole Abang sent to Denmark.

Heading into Sunday's match with D.C. United, the Red Bulls were forced to make changes to the regular starting lineup. Wingers Alex Muyl and Mike Grella were carrying one-match suspensions due to yellow card accumulation. Their replacements, Gonzalo Veron and Daniel Royer, played a role in both goals, nearly leading the Red Bulls to victory.

Veron, for all of the talk about his speed and technical ability, scored a goal based on pure hustle and will. There have been questions regarding his effort, but his performance against D.C. should do a lot to silence them. In previous matches at winger, Veron tended to get isolated and limited to few opportunities. On Sunday, the Argentine Designated Player was constantly moving from one end of the field to the other and forced his way onto the scoresheet.

"I thought it was great for Gonzalo to get a goal," Red Bulls manager Jesse Marsch said in his post-match press conference. "We've been working on our outside midfielders joining in on the back post, being able to score goals like that."

Fresh off a hard fought 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution, the New York Red Bulls are headed across the country to take on the Vancouver Whitecaps.

With seven regular season matches remaining, the Red Bulls find themselves in a comfortable third place in the Eastern Conference. They're only three points out of the top spot, while currently enjoying a nine-match unbeaten streak.

It's been a tumultuous season due to a succession of devastating injuries and disastrous collapses, but the Red Bulls have weathered most of the storms. Damien Perrinelle and Dax McCarty appear to have made successful returns from injury, which will enable the club to put its best foot forward in the CONCACAF Champions League and MLS Cup Playoffs.

New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch spoke to the media before his team takes on the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. Here's what he had to say…

  • Marsch said the Red Bulls need to stay aggressive in their game plan, despite losing the first two games and are yet to score a goal.
  • He hopes that Gonzalo Veron plays well on Saturday, because he opens up the midfield and helps take the pressure off Bradley Wright-Phillips.
  • Marsch hopes that Veron and Wright-Phillips prove "to be a handful" for opposing defenses.
  • The Red Bulls can't continue to "give games away."
  • "We've made a lot of mistakes and that's cost us. We have to find a way to eliminate that and we have to allow ourselves to grow throughout the season to become the team we know we can become."
  • The upcoming bye may be good for the Red Bulls, but only if they go into it off a win.
  • He expects Houston to be "very dangerous."
  • He used three adjectives when describing the Dynamo team: Grittiness, competitiveness and explosiveness.
