New MLS franchise New York City FC have struggled in their first couple of months in professional football.
Last night, the Manchester City offshoot played their first New York derby, losing 2-1 to Bradley Wright-Phillips inspired rivals New York Red Bulls.
The Red Bulls produced an excellent pre-match tifo ahead of kick off making fun of their rivals for being ‘Manchester City Lite’.
Still without a stadium, NYC FC are currently playing in the Yankee Stadium and that was seen as another opportunity to ridicule by the New York Red Bull fans.
Despite losing a man in the first half, the New York Red Bulls beat their new rivals 2-1 thanks to a Bradley Wright-Phillips brace.
The atmosphere was electric at the Red Bull Arena last night. See the pre match tifo below.
