FT: New York City 1, Palmeiras 2 — as it happened

Palmeiras edges out NYCFC 2-1

MLS: U.S. Open Cup-Atlanta United FC at Orlando City SC Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

FT: Palmeiras rally in the second half to edge out NYCFC 2-1.

This was a much better display than what we saw against Corinthians a few days ago. The first team plus some young stars really performed well in the first half. The reserves and Academy guys weren’t too shabby in the second half, either. Minus some mistakes, the game was competitive throughout.

74’: James Sands turns it over, Palmeiras capitalizes.

A bit sloppy from the typically in-form Sands. 2-1 Palmeiras.

70’: Nothing really going for NYCFC at the moment. Game has become more wide open with both teams reaching into their reserves. Lot more fouls.

Second half has begun! Can NYCFC hold onto, and maybe even extend their lead?

HT: What a way to end the half! NYCFC leads 1-0!

Andres Jasson makes easy work of his marker before crossing the ball towards goal. Osaze De Rosario meets the ball and heads it home to give NYCFC the leading tally going into the half. What a play!

25 minutes in. Palmeiras controls the game. The early injury and subsequent substitution of Maxi Moralez has surely impacted City’s ability to build the attack. But, it’s still early.

16’: Spectacular defending from Chanot there! Great double-stop from the center back!

8’: Stuver makes a massive save! That was a dangerous from Palmeiras!

3’ NYCFC launches a good counter-attack, but Maxi’s shot goes wide and high. Not a bad start for City.

And we’re off in Orlando! NYCFC wear City Blue, Palmeiras wear green.

The story: January 15’s game against Corinthians served as a proving ground for New York City FC’s younger and more needing talent. This game, however, against Palmeiras will finally provide fans a peak at what is a majority of City’s first team.

Many of NYCFC’s heavy hitters feature in what should be a fun watch.
