A Daniel Royer first-half goal helped the New York Red Bulls earn a 1-1 draw against Club Deportivo Olimpia in the first leg of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16 on Thursday at Estadio Nacional.
With the away goal, New York currently holds the tie breaker if the Leg 2 match were to end in a scoreless draw.
Off a failed Olimpia clear in their defensive third, Bradley Wright-Phillips gained possession of a loose ball and curled in a long pass into the 18-yard box. Wright-Phillips pass was perfectly place for a streaking Daniel Royer, who flicked the pass with his head to the far post for the 1-0 lead.
Alittle over halfway through the second half, Olimpia drew a foul inside the box for a penalty kick opportunity in the 73rd minute. Brayan Moya was given the opportunity and finished to the left post for the equalizer.
