The rivalry continued on Saturday night when the New York Red Bulls visited Subaru Park to take on the Philadelphia Union. The game kicked off early with a bonfire to burn the Red Bull in the Sons of Ben parking lot. The game had fire and spark but the battle ended in a 1-1 tie. Daniel Gazdag put one in the net in the 47th minute, giving him his sixth goal of the season. He is currently tied for second place in the MLS for most goals scored this season. The Union dropped to third place after the match. The boys play again on Wednesday against Inter Miami CF.

At the heart of every Red Bull lies the Philadelphia Union Badge.
