The visiting side ran all over the Chicago Fire in a dominant win to open the MLS playoffs

The New York Red Bulls wasted no time in taking control of their MLS knockout round match against the Chicago Fire, jumping out to an early lead before cruising to a 4-0 win. 

Despite being on the road for the midweek contest, the visiting side stormed out to a 2-0 lead inside the opening 15 minutes.

Bradley Wright-Phillips opened the scoring in the seventh minute, taking the ball down and rounding Chicago goalkeeper Matt Lampson before slotting home. The goal was the 99th for Wright-Phillips in all competitions for the Red Bulls. 

Sacha Kljestan doubled the lead in the 11th minute, sliding in to finish a Tyler Adams cross from the right side to give his club a commanding lead early in the one-off playoff contest. 

Daniel Royer tacked on New York's third of the night with a calm turn and finish in the 70th minute.  

And a fourth from Gonzalo Veron in the final minutes of the match gave the game its final 4-0 scoreline. 

The Red Bulls will face Supporters' Shield winner Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
