Sacramento Republic vs Swope Park Rangers: How to Watch and Match Thread

Playoffs Round 2 Victims - Stranger Danger Rangers

Alex Leguizamo

It is round two of the USL playoffs and it is a wonderful 200PM kickoff on a Saturday afternoon. What a perfect time to sit inside your house and watch a soccer game. The Republics next victims are the Swope Park Rangers and the boys have traveled back East to humiliate them in front of all 43 friends and family of the Rangers squad that will show up to watch them.

During the regular season the two teams meet twice with Sacramento losing one and tying the other. In the first round of the playoffs Sacramento had a thrilling 1-1 win after penalty kicks against the Real Monarchs while Swope Park had a win of their own in penalties after a match spanning two days against Phoenix due to weather.

My prediction for this afternoons match will be a nail-biting 2-1 win for The Quails.
