EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Juan Pablo Angel scored on a header in the 75th minute and the New York Red Bulls snapped a two-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over Chivas USA on Thursday night. Dane Richards set up Angel's second goal of the season with a great cross from the right edge of the box that left Chivas goalkeeper Brad Guzan defenseless.
The game was played a day after Major League Soccer announced it had reached a tentative agreement to transfer teenage sensation Jozy Altidore from the Red Bulls to Villarreal of the Spanish League for $10 million.
Altidore, who must pass a physical before the deal is finalized, didn't dress for the game because of an ankle injury.
Until Angel's goal from 11 yards out, Chivas USA had the best scoring chance in the game. Sacha Kljestan broke in on Jon Conway during the first-half stoppage time, but the Red Bulls goalkeeper made a sliding stop with his leg to keep the ball out of the net. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Chivas USA, which seemed to have the better of the second-half play until Angel converted.
New York also played without midfielder Claudio Reyna, who was out with a hamstring injury.
