Chicago and North Carolina meet in regular season

Chicago Red Stars will host North Carolina Courage at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Illinois in a rematch of the 2019 NWSL championship final. This is the first regular season meeting between the two sides since North Carolina's 4-0 win over Chicago for the 2019 NWSL championship.

The two teams have gone through massive changes within their rosters since their meeting back in 2019, with both clubs losing big key players. Both Chicago and North Carolina have had inconsistent starts to their 2021 regular season, thought Courage hit the road off a 5-0 win against Racing Louisville FC and Chicago are looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss against Houston Dash.

Gotham and OL Reign bounce back from losses

Gotham FC will host OL Reign Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey as both teams try to recover from losses in their previous matches.

Both sides have had strong and organized defenses in their matches, though Gotham has struggled offensively in the final third, failing to breakthrough on goal in two consecutive matches. Meanwhile, OL Reign have welcomed Rose Lavelle into the mix, and the team will look to Lavelle's continued progress on the pitch at attacking mid.

Gotham's Allie Long and Jennifer Cudjoe could try and disrupt Lavelle while trying to connect with Carli Lloyd and Paige Monaghan to generate the attack.

Thorns back at home

Portland Thorns FC are back at home to host Racing Louisville FC at Providence Park in Portland, Oregon. After two consecutive losses, the Thorns are coming off a recent 1-0 win against Gotham FC, and will try to put together their first win streak of the season.

Racing Louisville FC are coming of a record setting franchise loss against North Carolina Courage where Louisville were defeated 5-0. The expansion side will try to bounce back against a Portland Thorns side that thrives at home in Providence Park.

Kansas City only team without a win

Kansas City NWSL are currently the only team in NWSL without a win across all competitions in 2021 (both the Challenge Cup and regular season). The team will try to pick up their first regular season win when they host Houston Dash on Sunday at Legends Field.

The Dash hit the road after a three game homestand where the team went 1-1-1. Houston head into Kansas City off a recent 2-1 win against Chicago Red Stars. The result was their first regular season win. The team has added additional offensive pieces as they acquired Jasmyne Spencer in a trade with OL Reign and signed Mexican international Maria Sanchez from Tigres Femenil on a short term summer loan that will last the month of June.

They'll look to keep a young and rising Spirit at bay in the standings.
