Bunbury’s brace lifts 10-man Revs to Fifth Round: What did we say in our takeaways last Monday morning? That games like the 2-1 win over Los Angeles can build confidence for certain players who have just lacked it? Well, that was certainly true Tuesday night in the Garden State, as Teal Bunbury — who scored the match winner against Galaxy — scored two against the Red Bulls: the equalizer as he took Wilfried Zahibo’s long ball, nutmegged the hell out of New York's Amro Tarek, and curled it beyond the reach of goalkeeper Ryan Meara in the 85th minute. Then in extra time, Bunbury created a turnover near the midway line, raced in, then halted as he had two New York defenders in front of him and no help coming. No worries: he had a go, chipping Meara and putting it in the back of the net for the second straight match winner. The Revs defensive corps held on the rest of the way, and now advance to the Round of 16 next week.

Caicedo’s second yellow puts Revs down a man for the entirety of extra time: The match was in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time when Luis Caicedo, already playing on a yellow card — in fact, the only yellow given in the normal 90 — when he brought Alex Muyl down as he moved into the attacking third. The referee showed a second yellow, Caicedo given his marching orders. He’ll miss next week’s Open Cup match with a suspension.

Turner penalty save keeps Revs in it after going down 2-1: Nine minutes after the re-start, New York’s Christian Casseres hit a deadly dagger from 26 yards away
