NWSL Match Preview: Portland Thorns vs. Orlando Pride

Portland Thorns will be hosting Orlando Pride at Providence Park on Monday, July 19 at 3:30 AM CET for the National Women's Soccer League. The match will be played at Providence Park and both teams will be striving for a win following their draws against Gotham FC and Racing Louisville in the previous round. Portland Thorns will be deprived of many fundamental players in this match due to the upcoming Olympic games that obliged international players to join their national teams. Therefore, Portland will be missing Lindsey Horan a lot for example since she is the core of midfield and the player who creates most chances. But at the same time, it is the best chance for players like Morgan Weaver, Angela Salem and others to step up and fill the gap left by the internationals by winning this game even though that will not be simple.

On the other hand, Orlando Pride will be lacking the services of Ali Riley, Alex Morgan and Marta while they will be relying on Taylor Kornieck, Sydney Leroux in attack to make up for the mentioned absences. At the moment, both teams share the top spot alongside North Carolina Courage and Houston Dash but Portland Thorns have an advantage on all three teams since they still lack one match. Therefore, Orlando Pride will do everything necessary to prevent Portland Thorns from flying alone in the top spot and getting away by three points from the three second placed teams, while Portland Thorns will try to exploit the fact of playing at home to get an advantage on Orlando Pride and on the other NWSL teams in terms of points.
