Las Vegas is still mathematically alive and Monterey Bay is below the playoff line but well positioned to move up. A draw or loss wouldn’t end Lights FC’s playoff aspirations, but it’s really hard to figure see Las Vegas qualifying for the postseason with anything short of a victory. Monterey Bay comes into this match on a five-game unbeaten streak and armed with the knowledge that a win would vault it – at least temporarily – above the playoff line. This one should be tasty.
Sacramento lost in San Antonio last time out, but it still finds itself with strong odds of finishing third in the West. A win for Republic FC would come with the prize of officially ending Phoenix’s chances of making the playoffs, just as Sacramento knocked Phoenix out of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup this season. If Phoenix wants to do the unthinkable and reach the playoffs, it simply must win Wednesday night in Sacramento.
