Goalkeeper Adrianna Franch and Portland Thorns FC welcome Julie Ertz and the Chicago Red Stars to Providence Park on Saturday.

Franch has made nine saves this season and conceded just one goal, in last weekend’s 1-0 loss to North Carolina.

After getting off to a strong start with a 2-0 win in Week 1, Portland struggled against North Carolina’s stingy defense, forcing just one shot on goal. Still, the match was 0-0 until Courage midfielder Debinha scored the game-winner in the 81st minute.

Midfielder Allie Long leads Portland with 117 touches, an 87% passing accuracy and earned the assist on Portland’s only non-penalty kick goal so far this season.

The Red Stars come into this match off a 1-0 Week 2 win over FC Kansas City that saw Ertz play midfield and score the game-winner. Ertz was dangerous throughout the match as she also earned a penalty kick for Chicago (which was missed by Christen Press).

Arin Gilliland leads the defense with 121 touches as the Red Stars backline bounced back in Week 2 after conceding two goals in Week 1 to Houston.

The Thorns went 1-0-1 against the Red Stars in 2016, with Portland scoring all three goals vs. Chicago in the first half. The Thorns lead the all-time series with a 4-1-6 record and are unbeaten in their last four home games vs. the Red Stars (2-0-2), as well as their last eight overall vs. Chicago.
