NWSL Playoff Semifinal | Providence Park, Portland OR

A roster blown up in preseason. Injuries. International duty. A seven-game winless streak. Wildfires. Hurricanes. These Red Stars have fought tooth and nail for every inch of ground they’ve gained this year. And now their entire season is on the line. Chicago squares off tonight against the best team in league history, a squad with chips on their shoulders and a belief that the Championship is theirs by divine right. The Red Stars have each other, the best fans in the league, and a complete inability to know when they’re beat. Everything, everything, comes down to this.
