URFC host Portland Thorns FC @ Rio Tinto Stadium, the same team that beat them 3-0 on September 20

This is the second time Utah will face Portland in 2020, after falling 3-0 two weeks ago In this game, Portland controlled much of the first half, edging out the Utah 8-4 while holding over 60% of possession The Thorns were the first to take a 1-0 lead, Simone Charley scoring in the 35th minute Portland continued their lead into the second half as Sophia Smith and Lindsey Horan both added goals to bring the score to 3-0 URFC is 1-3-3 against the Thorns

Utah are in a better position this time around, having tied OL Reign last week, earning their first point of the fall series The squad looked better offensively, playing under coach Acting boss Amy LePeilbet The Royals started strong, with Diallo scoring in the ninth minute to take a 1-0 lead Tziarra King added her second goal of 2020 and the first in the NWSL fall series to double lead to 2-0 However, Reign scored two goals in the 23rd and 28th minute for the draw

Utah must continue to rebuild after disappointing 3-0 loss to Portland Defensively, there are holes the team must correct to keep Portland at bay this time around Portland leads the series fall, and it will be a tough challenge for the Royals.If the Royals keep a tight defense, they can hold the Thorns and hopefully make it a more competitive game
