Last Saturday, the New York Red Bulls held 10-men Fc Dallas to a 2-2 draw at the Toyota Stadium. FC Dallas couldn't win the encounter despite playing in front of their 16,035-person home crowd. However, the Red Bulls approach to the game was tactical, attack minded and physical. They opened the scoring in the first half but were unable to capitalize on their lead.

FC Dallas was apparently wasteful and squandered most of their goalscoring opportunities. Hernán Grana (54') and Mauro Diaz (76') were on target for RBNY, while goals from Sacha Kljestan (43') and Aaron Long (57') salvaged a draw for Óscar Pareja's side.

With this stalemate, FC Dallas is sixth with thirty-seven points in the Western Conference table. In the East, New York Red Bulls are fifth on forty points. Here's a quick match report and summary between the both teams:
