The New York Red Bulls were able to clinch an MLS Cup Playoff spot after taking advantage of an own-goal in the eight minute of last night’s match with the Philadelphia Union. Coming as the lone score of the entire match, the Red Bulls were able to pull-off one of their biggest victories of the season to earn the playoff spot.
The New York Red Bulls are now tied with the Houston Dynamo for the 9th playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Depending on how the Houston Dynamo finish their season, New York is set to play a single elimination road game in the wild card round, versus either the seventh or eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
