Sacramento Republic FC v Phoenix Rising FC: How to Watch and Match Thread

Republic travel to Phoenix

Joe de Ocampo

The Republic travel down south to the Arizona heat to meet up with Drogba and friends for a top tier Western Conference match-up. Phoenix is currently siting in second place, while the Quails are down in fourth. Both teams had Open Cup matches during midweek play but with opposite outcomes. The Republic won 3-1 against SFCFC while Rising FC lost to Sporting AZ in penalty kicks. Hopefully tonight the Republic can take advantage of their opponents sour loss and steal three points away.
