OL Reign begin their three-game road trip in Kansas City on Sunday. They’ll face the KC Current at Children’s Mercy Park, with a kickoff time of 4 PM PT. The game will stream on Paramount+ for fans in the U.S. and Twitch for international viewers (search NWSL Official).

After Saturday’s matches, OL Reign sits in 5th place with a 4-2-5 record (11 GF, 8 GA). Kansas City is in 7th with a 4-4-3 record (11 GF, 14 GA). The Reign could jump back into 4th place with a win. The Current are riding a six-match undefeated streak, while OL Reign have gone four matches without a loss.

OL Reign will still be without their eight players on international duty, but fans could see Tobin Heath’s first minutes in a Reign jersey. Everyone else is healthy after a Covid outbreak kept four players out of the lineup last weekend.

What to Watch

  • Be patient: KC is a team that likes to be hard to beat defensively. The Reign may not find a lot of success early, but if they are patient and look for the holes, they should find some success on the road.
  • Win the battles in the midfield: KC has talented players in the midfield, like Lo’eau LaBonta and rookie Alex Loera, who like to win duels and move the ball through the middle. The Reign will need to stand firm in this spot on the field.
  • Feed Balcer: Bethany Balcer is on a bit of a tear right now. Feed the hot hand. Get Balcer the ball early and often.
