Utah Royals FC have not been in great form. The team haven’t won a game since they hosted Sky Blue on June 15th. We’re now into August and the Royals’ hopes of making the playoffs are shrinking. On the other side of the field, Chicago Red Stars have been a very strong side. They have one of the best strikers in the world in Sam Kerr, and in a game where the US and Mexico players will miss with international duty, Kerr’s lethal goal-scoring will be a huge problem for the Royals.
