Portland Thorns FC is back at it with their final match in group play in the NWSL Challenge Cup. This time, they’re taking on the Houston Dash, who won the whole dang thing last year. The Dash won’t get the chance to defend themselves this year, as the Thorns already secured their spot in the final last week against OL Reign.
Even though the Thorns are already in the final, this match should be a good one. Both teams should be relatively close to full strength with no players on international break. The Dash will be looking to build off their latest victory against Kansas City while the Thorns will be looking for the clean sweep of Group B. The Thorns might have already secured their spot, but don’t expect the Dash to make it easy for Portland.
Location: BBVA Stadium | Houston, TX
