The Thorns are back on the road after a two game home streak. This time, however, they're sticking fairly close to home traveling only up to Seattle to take on the Seattle Reign. While the Reign remains one of the weaker teams in the league, Jessica Fishlock is sure to give the Thorns just as much trouble as she did last week.
Here are all the details for tonight's game:

The Thorns are still on top of the league and, like the Timbers against D.C. United, are playing the team with the worst record in the league so far. Those are always nice statistics to have heading into a match because it shows that the Thorns are the better side. Still, I would be hesitant to consider it an easy win, especially as it's a Seattle game. No matter how far departed the two sides are in the standings, a rivalry game will always bring out unexpected events.
