It’s a big one tonight for the Thorns, as they play rival Seattle in a match that will determine whether they get a home semifinal. A win would clinch second for the Thorns, while a draw would put them in third, and a loss would leave them either third or fourth. Portland will be missing Hayley Raso after the winger suffered a fractured spine against the Spirit, and Meghan Klingenberg may not play due to an adductor strain. For Seattle, Megan Rapinoe, Allie Long, and Bev Yanez are all in the questionable column.
