Sky Blue currently have their back's against the wall. They have a huge task if they want to make the play-offs. According to Sports Club Stats they have a .033% chance of making of the play-offs. So you're saying there's a chance. They need a lot of things to break their way but the first thing they have to do is win.
Tonight's opponent is Portland Thorns FC. Portland, which was recently announced as the host of the NWSL final, will be looking to do everything they can to make the play-offs. The good news for Portland and bad news for Sky Blue is that Alex Morgan will be back from national team duty and is expected to play. Morgan recently scored for the National team and will be looking to score big goals tonight.
Pay careful attention to the atmosphere tonight. The game was announced as a sell out by Sky Blue, and for a team that has struggled about attendance, it cannot be overstated how big that will be. The team has really capitalized on the World Cup bump and attendance has grown for every game afterwards. Let's hope they give the fan's at home something to cheer about.
