MLS Review: Red Bulls clinch play-off spot

The New York Red Bulls clinched an MLS play-off spot, while Dallas were held on Saturday.

A 3-0 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps saw the Red Bulls claim the sixth and final play-off place in the Eastern Conference.

Daniel Royer put the hosts ahead in the 33rd minute at Red Bull Arena, finishing well after a smart Bradley Wright-Phillips dummy from a Sacha Kljestan pass.

Wright-Phillips doubled the lead before the hour-mark, clipping a finish past David Ousted after a wonderfully weighted pass from Tyler Adams.

Felipe Martins completed the victory in style, his 25-yard rocket sealing the result and ending the Red Bulls' eight-match winless league run.
