OL Reign will be looking for their first back-to-back wins of the 2021 NWSL regular season today, as they face Racing Louisville at home. The match kicks off at 7 PM PT at Cheney Stadium and will stream on Twitch for all viewers, both in the U.S. and internationally.
OL Reign are coming off a 2-0 win over Orlando on the road, while Racing Louisville fell 2-0 to the Washington Spirit at home.
The NWSL expansion club, which is led by former Sky Blue FC coach Christy Holly, currently sits just under OL Reign with a game in hand. A win today could propel the Reign as high as 6th place.
