A lot is on the line in the Houston Dash and OL Reign’s Saturday matchup, with a spot in the NWSL playoffs in play.

The Dash and OL Reign can both clinch a postseason berth with a win, adding weight to the Houston-hosted fixture, with the Reign also advancing with a draw.

OL Reign hasn’t missed the NWSL playoffs since 2017, while the Dash will be looking to make the club’s first trip to the postseason.

Houston will be without star Ebony Salmon who leads the team with nine goals on the season, as the English striker is out on COVID-19 protocol.

The Dash prevailed in the team’s last contest, with Salmon notching the game-winning brace. OL Reign, however, is in top form, entering Houston riding a four-game unbeaten streak.

OL Reign and the Houston Dash will face off on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET on Twitch.
