The New York Red Bulls rested a number of first choice players for Sunday's match against the Philadelphia Union ahead of the U.S. Open Cup final this week and failed to pick up the result at home.

With the Red Bulls best playmaker and goalscorer on the bench for much of the match, the Union earned a hard-fought road result 0-0 at Red Bull Arena.

The Union get a point on the road thanks to the stellar play of Andre Blake.

Those who remained to watch were treated to a great display of goalkeeping from two of Major League Soccer's best.

Another late goal, another missed opportunity.

For more than an hour, it looked like the Philadelphia Union were going to outlast a swarming Atlanta United side desperate for an equalizing goal. Even after Josh Yaro's 52nd-minute red card left his side shorthanded for the remainder of the second half, the Union held strong.

Yeah, this was bad.

The Philadelphia Union entered Toronto with a pipe dream of breaking Toronto FC's season-long home unbeaten streak or at least a slightly more realistic dream of leaving BMO Field with a singular point. Unfortunately, both of those dreams were smashed early and stomped on for the duration of the match as the Union left the pitch victims of a dispiriting 3-0 defeat to Toronto FC.

After a perfectly boring half of soccer, both the Philadelphia Union and the Montreal Impact remain scoreless.

The two teams recorded a combined five shots, with each team registering a shot on goal apiece. Unsurprisingly, CJ Sapong and Ignacio Piatti were the two players to have sent their efforts goalbound.

Andre Blake's early injury robbed him of a chance to shine in Wednesday's Gold Cup final, but the good news is that the Jamaican goalkeeper shouldn't be out of action for too long.
