Cásseres, Jr. scored his fifth goal of the season and his first since July 3 against Orlando City SC.

The Venezuelan international recorded his third game-winning goal of the year, which leads the team this season.

The Red Bulls earned their 10th New York Derby win all-time and are unbeaten in the last six New York Derby's at Red Bull Arena (4-0-2).

New York was unbeaten in all three New York Derby's this year and outscored NYCFC, 3-1, while earning two clean sheets.

Since 2015, New York is 89-19-23 when scoring the first goal of the match, including a 11-5-3 mark this season.

Goalkeeper Carlos Coronel earned his 11th shutout of the season and his seventh at Red Bull Arena. He has recorded a shutout in three-straight matches.
