Tonight marks the first meeting between OL Reign and the Orlando Pride this season. The road match at Exploria Stadium in Orlando kicks off at 4 PM PT (UPDATE: due to a weather delay, kickoff has been pushed to 4:37 PM PT).

The match will air locally on FOX 13+ and will stream on Paramount+ for fans in the U.S. and Twitch for international viewers (search NWSLOfficial).

OL Reign enters the match fifth in the league table with a 6-4-6 record. The club has scored 20 goals while allowing 15. Orlando is eighth in the league with a 5-5-6 record and has scored 19 goals while conceding 31.

The Pride are riding a seven-game unbeaten streak and are just three points behind the Reign. With just five matches remaining for OL Reign after tonight, it’s a very tight NWSL table. Only five points separate fourth and seventh place at the moment. If the Reign want to continue their steady push for the playoffs — with the top six teams in the league advancing — a win or draw today would be incredibly helpful.

What to Watch

  • Riding Pinoe’s momentum: Megan Rapinoe has scored three goals and assisted on two in the team’s last three regular-season matches. She’s in great form right now. Can she continue the momentum in Orlando?
  • Attacking creativity: The Orlando Pride are an organized team defensively and put numbers behind the ball. How does OL Reign counter this and get creative in the final third?
  • Clean sheet: It has been a while since OL Reign have earned a clean sheet (July 1 was their last one). Let’s change that tonight.

56’ - Megan Rapinoe does incredibly well to keep possession and create a chance here, and Bethany Balcer times her run perfectly to finish it. 1-1 now!

90+2’ - Megan Rapinoe with the stoppage time dagger! Reign win 2-1.
