The lone goal, scored just past the half-hour mark, was awarded following Video Review after Robert Beric was initially ruled offside. Referee Victor Rivas went to the monitor, where it was determined that Carlos Teran’s long throw-in deflected off a pair of Red Bulls players before landing for Beric’s near-range finish.
Just after coming on as part of a double substitution, Danny Royer couldn’t latch onto a Fabio ball across the face of goal. Chicago defender Jonathan Bornstein got a piece of the pass for the critical intervention in the 65th minute.
That was RBNY's final quality chance as Chicago, who nearly earned a late insurance goal from Alvaro Medran that pinged off the post, celebrated a second win over New York in just under three weeks. They've now leapfrogged them in the race to get above the playoff line in the Eastern Conference.
- 32’ – CHI – Robert Beric | WATCH
- THE BIG PICTURE: The Fire moved ahead of the Red Bulls into 10th place in the East by snapping a 19-match road winless streak that dated back to Decision Day presented by AT&T on Oct. 6, 2019 when they defeated Orlando City SC, 5-2. It was a devastating defeat for the Red Bulls, their ninth one-goal loss of the season. They're now 12th in the East and five points below the line.
- MOMENT OF THE MATCH: There was just one goal scored and, as was the case in Chicago's 2-1 home win over the Red Bulls on Aug. 8, a long throw-in by Teran proved to be effective.
- MAN OF THE MATCH: Beric gets the honors for his first goal since July 7 in a 3-1 win over Orlando. The striker has a history of scoring in bunches, something Fire fans hope continues to be the case.
