MLS: Moralez winner seals derby for New York City FC1 min read


The Argentine’s late goal settled a New York derby that didn’t feature many clear scoring opportunities

A late winner from Maximiliano Moralez helped New York City FC edge the New York Red Bulls 1-0 in the Hudson River Derby on Sunday.

Moralez scored an 85th-minute winner at Yankee Stadium to lift City above their rivals and into second in the Eastern Conference.

The result also ended the Red Bulls’ four-match unbeaten run in MLS.

Both teams had their chances in the first half, before Kaku put a great chance just wide for the visitors in the 74th minute.

City punished their rivals with five minutes remaining. After a Red Bulls giveaway, Moralez finished a Jonathan Lewis pass to give Domenec Torrent’s men the win.
