Red Bulls down Red Bulls Salzburg, 3-2, in scrimmage

By

Unanswered second-half goals from Juan Pablo Angel, Luke Sassano and Mike Magee helped the Red Bulls post a 3-2 victory against Red Bull Salzburg at Bullen Arena in Salzburg, Austria on Thursday.

After a scoreless first half, Salzburg opened the scoring with strikes from Vladimir Janocko (47th minute) and Djorje Rakic (53rd minute) before Angel got the Red Bulls on the board in the 59th minute when he finished off the rebound of a saved Claudio Reyna shot. Reyna set up the equalizer in the 66th minute when he set up rookie Luke Sassano with a close-range goal.

Magee provided the game-winner in the 78th minute when he buried a rebounded Sassano shot.

The Salzburg squad was made up of first-team players who did not play full minutes in Red Bull Salzburg’s 3-0 league win against Wacker Innsbruck on Wednesday night.

Paraguayan trialist Lider Marmol left the match with a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him sidelined for six weeks. Mexican trialist Jose Mendoza did not play in the match.
