ACFC played two games last week, only one a competitive game, but won both 1-0, courtesy of Savannah McCaskill goals. The competitive game was a hard-fought win at The Banc over the Chicago Red Stars, a big win in their playoff chase as the final stretch of the season approaches. While Angel City seem to vacillate between wearing themselves out too early and failing to hold onto a result and actually holding on to the bitter end, they seem to be looking better, even if their form overall remains consistent in its inconsistency.
It’s a different picture for the Current, who are unbeaten in their last 10 games. Their last match was a wild 4-3 away win against the North Carolina Courage, which in hindsight was rather predictable considering both teams have a penchant for wild games. They’ve really gone under the radar while in the midst of this outstanding run, but if they keep going, they’ll be atop the table or close to it before long.
Angel City won the first meeting between these clubs, a 1-0 game at The Banc in May, when Christen Press forced an own goal by KC. Christen Press, impacting an Angel City game, remember that? At any rate, Angel City could really use a result if they want to get into a playoff spot, but they’ll need to be at their best against a very good opponent here.
