How to Watch Angel City FC vs. Chicago Red Stars

Angels back to work against a new foe.

Soccer: International Friendly Soccer-Tigres UANL at Angel City FC Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After hosting their first-ever midseason friendly midweek, Angel City FC are back in action Sunday evening, when they host another new opponent for them, this time the Chicago Red Stars, at The Banc.

Last time on Angel City, they played Tigres Feminil in a friendly on Wednesday. The game was a nice occasion all around, with many ACFC players getting a chance to find some playing time at The Banc, and they came away with a solid 1-0 win, Savannah McCaskill’s 2nd-half goal the difference in the match. It would be nice if some of those Angel City players get more of a look in Freya Coombe’s lineup moving forward, but we’ll see what happens.

The Red Stars have been perhaps one of the surprise packages of 2022 so far, as they sit in 4th place and look like a a solid playoff team. This, in spite of the fact that most of their first-choice defense is out for the year, they lost their internationals for long stretches and their superstar Mal Pugh has been in and out of the lineup all season. In spite of that, a young group is really holding up week to week, and they have only lost three league games so far this year.

Given it’s the first meeting between the teams, it’s hard to project how they’ll look against each other, but Pugh is slated to be out this game with an injury, so perhaps that gives ACFC enhanced hope they can get a win. We’ve obviously seen Angel City win convincingly this season, but every game is a new challenge and hopefully they are up for this one.
