Gallery: Exclusive photos from Sunday’s New York Derby as Red Bulls run riot

The third and final Hudson River Derby of the 2016 season took place on Sunday night, with the New York Red Bulls thumping arch rivals New York City FC 4-1 at Red Bull Arena.

The Red Bulls dominated the game from start to finish and raced into a 2-0 lead inside the first 25 minutes thanks to goals from Bradley Wright-Phillips and Ronald Zubar.

Sacha Kljestan then converted a penalty on 41 minutes to seemingly put the game beyond NYCFC’s reach, until Tommy McNamara fired a stunning strike into the top corner to give the visitors hope just before halftime.

But Patrick Vieira’s men couldn’t build any kind of momentum in the second half, with Wright-Phillips cooly slotting in his second and the Red Bulls’ fourth of the night to seal a fifth derby win from six meetings.

Ethan White was sent off for New York City in the dying embers of the game to cap off a miserable night for the Eastern Conference leaders. The Red Bulls’ win moved them into second, just two points behind their rivals.

Sunday’s clash offered everything you could want from a big rivalry clash. Check out photos from the game below, taken by MLSGB photographer Ashley Marshall.
