Red Bulls 1, Galaxy 1: MLS Powerhouses Play To Draw

It was supposed to be a battle of two of the most talented teams in the MLS. Both teams boasted incredible star power, and both sides were trying to find their championship form.

The match lived up to what it was supposed to be, with New York and Los Angeles playing out a 1-1 draw.

Red Bull keeper Bouna Coundoul played a fantastic game for New York, making critical saves in the early going, and preserving the draw down the stretch. Coundoul might get overlooked on this team filled with star-talent, but he’s one of the more vital cogs in this Red Bull machine, and he showed why against the Galaxy.

Thierry Henry had another great game (three in a row for him), burying his fourth goal of the season in the fourth minute of the game. Henry’s goal gave the Red Bulls a 1-0 lead.

But towards the end of the half the Galaxy would answer with a goal from their superstar, Landon Donovan. Donovan would put home a perfect feed to tie the game at one.

Both sides pressured over the rest of the match, but couldn’t find a go-ahead goal.

The Red Bulls are now 4-1-3 on the season.


New York Red Bulls Vs. LA Galaxy: Big Test For New York

The New York Red Bulls have championship aspirations on their minds this season, and who can blame them? In every championship quest, though, there will be tests. Tonight is one of those tests for New York as it takes on Landon Donovan and the Los Angeles Galaxy in LA.

The Red Bulls recently made a splash in the MLS power rankings, moving up to second place after a 1-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City.

The two teams have rosters filled with big-name talent. Aside from Donovan, the Galaxy feature David Beckham and former Red Bull Juan Pablo Angel. The Red Bulls, obviously, feature Rafa Marquez and Thierry Henry.

Aside from a potential championship match-up, this game also features Angel's first appearance against his former team. Angel signed with the Galaxy this off-season, despite finally finding some chemistry with Henry towards the end of the year.

Time will only tell if any emotions will spill over from his move.

But New York can't focus on that now. The Red Bulls need to focus on one of the better teams in the league, and see where they really stand in the MLS.
