This week the Portland Thorns take on the top two teams in the NWSL and they will need wins against both if they want to retake the league's top spot. The team will start the pair of games off with tonight's match against New Jersey's Sky Blue FC and their diverse attack. The team's previous two meetings have been tightly contested affairs, so expect this one to be a defensive battle between contenders.

Final Thoughts

After a white hot start to the season, the Thorns have only won once in their last six games, including last Sunday's late game collapse against the Chicago Red Stars. It will be vital that they take all three points tonight if they are to make a grab for the top spot in the league over their final five games. Sky Blue features a diverse attack that could give the Thorns' recently shaky defense trouble, so it will be up to Karina LeBlanc and company to lock things down at the back.
