Real Salt Lake 1, New York Red Bulls 0 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
Real Salt Lake bounced back from their disappointing home opener last week, defeating the New York Red Bulls 1-0 on Saturday night at a snowy Rio Tinto Stadium.
RSL got the lead early, as Carlos Rivas was called for a foul on David Horst in New York's box that was deemed a penalty after Video Review. Albert Rusnak notched the penalty for the home side.
But New York, heavily rotating the lineup once again after midweek Concacaf Champions League play, were up to the task and largely dominated the statistical categories throughout. Without the efforts of Nick Rimando and RSL's defense, RSL would not have picked up all three points.
