Utah Royals FC are back at home and in a desperate fight for a playoff spot. They take on Washington Spirit. The two sides have met just once before, with the Royals walking away with a 2-0 win. The Spirit are on a mere ten points this season and are only above Sky Blue (winless this season) in the table. This is a game URFC have to win if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.
