New York Red Bulls claimed a derby win over New York City, thanks to a Daniel Royer brace.

Daniel Royer guided New York Red Bulls to an MLS derby win on Sunday, while Seattle Sounders edged Atlanta United.

The Red Bulls came from behind to overcome New York City 2-1 in the Hudson River Derby.

City took a seventh-minute lead at Red Bull Arena, Heber getting on the end of Anton Tinnerholm's cross from the right to open the scoring.

However, the hosts drew level on the stroke of half-time as Royer put a penalty into the top corner.
