Two points separate the teams, and the result of this game will likely determine whether Kansas City keeps pushing for the playoffs or begins thinking about the off-season. The Current are just five points away from 6th place, the position needed to make the playoffs in late October, so three points from this game would add to the hopes of making the post-season.

But they’ll face an Angel City who is unbeaten in their last six league games. The Current have lost just one in their last five games, and they are a strong side at home, winning five of their last six home matches in all competitions including wins in each of the last three.

Also of note is Angel City being unbeaten in its three all-time meetings with Kansas City (W2 D1). Their last game in May was a 3-2 win for the LA team.

The good news for Kansas City is the return of midfielder Claire Lavogez, coming of the injury list, which would give Kansas City another attacking player in a crucial time.

Injury Report

OUT: Vanessa DiBernardo (Concussion), Hanna Glas (L Knee – D45), Morgan Gautrat, (Concussion), Sam Mewis (R Knee – SEI), Desiree Scott (L Knee – D45), Jordan Silkowitz (L. Hand – D45), Mallory Weber (R Knee – SEI)

Prediction: KC – 3; ACFC – 1
