OL Reign begins a busy week with a road match against the North Carolina Courage. The game kicks off at 1 PM PT and will air on CBS. International viewers can watch the match on Twitch.

This is the first of three games in seven days for the Reign. After this match in Cary, NC, the Reign return home to face Chicago on Tuesday and Gotham FC on Saturday. There is plenty of depth on this squad, and that’s going to be used over the next week. How will head coach Farid Benstiti use that depth on the road today, with a number of players just returning from international duty?

OL Reign’s ability to go 90 minutes in the heat will also be tested. It is forecast to be 94 degrees with 37% humidity at kickoff. Benstiti may need to call on early subs for both rotational reasons and to keep the team fresh on a large field in the heat.

What to Watch

  • Defend North Carolina’s crosses
  • Clog the midfield space
  • Create — and finish! — early chances
