OL Reign will host their final home regular-season match of the season tonight, as they take on a red-hot Washington Spirit side at Cheney Stadium. The game kicks off at 7 PM PT and will stream on Paramount+ for fans in the U.S. and Twitch for international viewers.
OL Reign still sit one point behind the Portland Thorns in second, while the Washington Spirit moved into third with their midweek win — sitting six points behind OL Reign.
The Reign will be looking for a bit of a reset after some uncharacteristic poor passing the last two matches, while the Spirit are fighting their way into securing a playoff spot and hoping to host one playoff game at home.
What to Watch
- Contain Trinity Rodman
- No giveaways in bad spots
