There were no goals scored, but the New York Red Bulls' scoreless draw against Real Salt Lake on Saturday was far from boring.
The two MLS Cup title contenders played a fiercely-contested and highly technical match that saw Real Salt Lake hit the woodwork with two shots.
The match was a much more competitive encounter than the last time the teams met, a 1-0 victory by RSL at Rio Tinto Stadium last month.
The Red Bulls were playing without goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul and midfielder Dane Richards, but they weren't missed as Greg Sutton did well in goal while Joel Lindpere looked like a natural on the right wing.
The tie moved New York two points clear of the Columbus Crew atop the Eastern Conference, while leaving Real Salt Lake four points behind Los Angeles in the race for the Suppporters Shield.
Here are the highlights:
