Sacramento Republic vs Real Monarchs: How to Watch and Match Thread

PLAYOFFS BABY!

Joe de Ocampo

It is playoff time baby and LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE! Absolutely do not look at the two regular season matchups between The Quails and Monarchs as any indication of tonight's match (two 2-0 defeats for the Republic) because in playoff soccer anything can and will happen. Also do not look at both clubs final five games of the season (SLC 3W-0L-2T & SAC 1W-3L-1T) as any indication of how they might play because once again...playoffs. The only thing you should really consider is Sacramento has hella more USL Championship trophies (1) than the other team they will be facing (0). And we all know that championship trophies from past years are really the only indicator of a teams success in the current season.
