The Reign go into their first road match since June needing, as they will until the end of the season, a good result to stay in the playoff hunt. They're the hottest team in the league right now, so it seems like anything is possible. But the second hottest is FC Kansas City, who are also on a 6 game undefeated streak (though 4 of those were draws).
For the Reign the roster questions of the early season are largely answered. With the recent additions of Megan Rapinoe, Tiffany Cameron, and Renae Cuellar the front line is set. The only remaining question is when Stephanie Cox will be read to get into the backline rotation and it looks like the answer is 'not yet', as she'll once again start on the bench. Still this is very close to the best the Reign roster is going to get this season and it's one that can absolutely do better than the 2-0 loss they picked up on their first trip to Kansas City.
