It hasn’t been the best start to the 2023 campaign for Angel City FC. With just one win through the opening four matches, the club have struggled to find their stride and need a win in a bad way. Unfortunately, things in this league never get easier, as the squad hit the road against first-placed Portland Timbers.

The hosting Thorns are in full-on repeat mode to start the season. They come into this unbeaten, with just a single draw. They have scored the most goals of any team so far this season (11) and have allowed the least amount of goals of any team in the league (2). For the visitors, tonight’s match is an opportunity to shake off the early season rust and start finding some sort of form. Angel City have only won one match this season, and have allowed more goals than they’ve scored. While we aren’t in must-win territory just yet, it’s definitely time this team start playing with a bit more purpose as they settle into the season.
Angel City FC: OUT – Simone Charley (Season Ending Injury – Achilles), Sydney Leroux (ankle), Merritt Mathias (knee), Mackenzie Pluck (excused absence), M.A. Vignola (illness), Christen Press (SEI – knee).
