Seattle Reign FC concludes its three-match week with a road trip to Portland. The match against the Portland Thorns kicks off at 7 PM PT and will air on ION.

Seattle faced the Kansas City Current mid-week, playing to a scoreless draw, while the Thorns last played a week ago, winning 2-1 against the Washington Spirit.

The Thorns have won four straight matches after going 0-3-1 to start the season. But anything goes in a Cascadia rivalry match, and today should be no different.
