Brazilian pair Carlos Coronel and Fabio starred as New York Red Bulls secured a big road win 2-1 against Orlando City in the MLS on Saturday.
Fabio scored the 79th-minute winner, his second goal of the season, after Coronel had saved Mauricio Pereyra’s penalty on the stroke of half-time.
Venezuelan midfielder Cristian Casseres fired in an excellent left-foot strike to open the scoring in the sixth minute but Orlando had a chance to level moments before half-time.
Uruguayan midfielder Pereyra shot low to Coronel’s left but the Brazilian dived well and palmed away the spot-kick.
Pereyra partly made up for his miss, laying off the pass for Chris Mueller to equalize high into the back of the net in the 59th minute.
But Fabio held off a defender to fire home to secure the Red Bulls’ first road win of the season, moving them up to seventh in the Eastern Conference.
