Utah Royals FC are coming off their worst ever loss, having fallen 4-0 to the Portland Thorns. On top of that, Diana Matheson has been suspended by the NWSL Disciplinary Committee for her challenge on Thorns player Midge Purce. The Royals are currently in 6th place in the NWSL table while Seattle is in 2nd, but only 5 points separate these two teams. Can the Royals bounce back after the loss in Portland to get a much needed result?
