A handful of critical USL points are at stake tonight in Sacramento which could catapult the Republic in to playoff position. The Republic are coming off of a dominating performance against MLS side Real Salt Lake midweek in the US Open Cup. Hopefully this performance can jump start league play for them after their loss last weekend with dropped points. The Whitecaps FC 2 are also having a sub-par season so far and loss last week to Drogba and company in Phoenix 2-1.
