It was a frustrating point for New York, which dominated virtually every offensive category. The Red Bulls (3-2-2, 11 points) had 56% of possessions, 20 shots to five for Dallas, seven shots on goal to two, 72 more assists and nine corners to nil for the visitors.
FC Dallas (3-1-3, 12 points) must have felt very lucky to earn a draw, with goalkeeper Maarten Paes forced to make six saves and the defense having to make 38 clearances.
But the Red Bulls nearly gave FC Dallas a major chance when striker Tom Barlow brushed past a red card with a high elbow that bloodied FC Dallas defender Marco Farfan’s face in the 87th minute.
The final 10 minutes were the most exciting of the match, with Coronel stretching to stop Franco Jara’s shot in the 83rd minute on what was FC Dallas’ best chance to score to that point.
Later, in second-half stoppage time, Jader Obrian narrowly missed the visitors’ goal.
After Coronel’s key save, the Red Bulls had three great chances.
Patryk Klimala’s header was saved in the 85th minute, then Paes stopped a left-footed shot from John Tolkin a minute later, and Klimala’s follow-up header peeked atop the goal.
New York is winless in five straight home games since the end of last season. They have two draws at home and a 4-4-8 record in their last 16 home games.
FC Dallas are winless in their last nine away games (0-4-5) and haven’t won on the road since last August.
