NWSL Preview: Angel City FC (6-6-6) at Chicago Red Stars (6-10-2)

SeatGeek Stadium | Bridgeview, Illinois – Sunday, September 17 at 6:00 PM ET

Players to watch:

In the Red Stars’ 2-0 win over the Spirit in their last match, Chicago defender Casey Krueger notched her fifth assist of the season in all competitions with four of those coming on crosses. Krueger is tied with teammate Julia Bianchi for most assists on crosses by any NWSL player this season in all competitions.

Angel City defender Jasmyne Spencer had a fantastic display in her last time out as she scored her first NWSL goal since scoring for Houston in the 2021 season in Angel City’s 1-0 victory over the Current. Spencer is the fifth player to score for five or more different NWSL clubs, joining Kristie Mewis, Jess McDonald, Sydney Leroux, and Jodie Taylor.

Match facts: With just four regular season contests remaining, the Chicago Red Stars welcome Angel City FC to SeatGeek Stadium in the final of six league contests around the NWSL this weekend. Chicago has lost just one of their last five league games but remain in 11th place with 20 points from 18 games played, while Angel City is on a remarkable seven-game league unbeaten run (10 games in all competitions) and are on the outer edge of that playoff line sitting in 8th place with 24 points from 18 games played.

Chicago have not allowed a goal in any of their last three home matches in all competitions (W2 D1). The Red Stars are looking to have four consecutive shutouts at home for the first time in team history now.

Angel City is unbeaten in its last 10 matches in all competitions (W6 D4) with the six wins matching the team’s total for its previous 32 games dating back to 2022. The 10-match unbeaten streak is twice as long as the team’s previous longest undefeated run.

Chicago earned a 2-1 road victory against Angel City earlier this season with Ava Cook notching a first-half brace. Cook is one of three players with a multi-goal game against Angel City in the regular season (Christine Sinclair and Veronica Latsko) but the only one of those to earn a brace in the first half.
