Portland (6-5-5) is at home for the second weekend in a row to face the Houston Dash (5-6-5). Houston is on short rest after games last Saturday and Wednesday, while the Thorns haven’t played since last Friday, when they beat the Royals 4-0 at home. The scramble for playoff spots has yet to really open up; third- and fourth-place Orlando and Chicago are each five points ahead of Portland, but the Thorns have two games in hand on both of them. Both Houston and Portland will be looking at this game as a must-win.
