If there is one team that has served as a boogeyman of sorts for Angel City, it’s the Reign. They have yet to get a result against their budding rivals, with OL winning all five previous matchups. Having already beaten Los Angeles to open up group stage play, the Reign will be working to complete the double and keep that unblemished record intact. There’s no denying Angel City have gotten off to a tough start to the season, but after a draw on the road last time they took the pitch, this would be the perfect time to build on that and snatch a win over OL Reign for the first time ever.
Angel City FC: OUT – Simone Charley (Achilles – SEI), Christen Press (knee – SEI), Merritt Mathias (knee), Sydney Leroux (ankle), Julie Ertz (excused absence), Mackenzie Pluck (excused absence)
Questionable – M.A. Vignola (illness)
OL Reign: OUT – Angelina (knee – SEI), Rose Lavelle (leg), Quinn (leg), Phoebe McClernon (back), Olivia Van der Jagt (excused absence)
