Utah Royals FC travel to the northwest to take on Portland Thorns FC. The Thorns, who sit one place and one point behind second place Utah Royals, are back in their renovated stadium. It’s not a location the Royals have found much success historically, having suffered two defeats there in 2018. The Thorns are missing a total of nine players to international duty, but Utah will be missing mid-field magician Vero Boquete due to an ankle injury she picked up against Sky Blue last week.
