Matchup: Houston Dash vs. NJ/NY Gotham FC - 8:00 PM ET

Where to watch: NWSL+

The reigning champions, Gotham FC (2-2-2), hit the road tonight following a massive victory last weekend, securing three well-deserved points. Their next challenge? The Houston Dash (1-5-1), fresh off a hard-fought draw against the league's top-scoring team, the Kansas City Current. Sitting at 13th in the standings, the Dash are poised for an upward climb, bolstered by the steadfast presence of Jane Campbell, the league's leading goalkeeper in saves. With their backs against the wall, they pose a significant threat to Gotham FC, making this matchup one to watch closely.

Matchup: Seattle Reign FC vs. Kansas City Current - 10:00 PM ET

Where to watch: NWSL+

Ending a streak of five consecutive losses, Reign FC (2-5-0) clinched a crucial victory last Friday against the Wave, providing a much-needed boost as they prepare to host the undefeated Kansas City Current (5-0-2). The KC Current faced adversity over the weekend in Houston, forced to settle for a draw following a prolonged weather delay. With both teams hungry for a win, it’ll be another must watch match as Lumen Field transforms into the site of an epic showdown between Vlatko Andonovski and Laura Harvey.

Matchup: San Diego Wave vs. Utah Royals FC - 10:00 PM ET

Where to watch: CBS Sports Network

In a mid-week matchup, the San Diego Wave (2-3-1) are set to host the Utah Royals FC (1-5-1) in only the Royals' second encounter with a California-based team. Their first – against Angel City FC last weekend – ended in a narrow loss at home. Similarly, the Wave are entering Wednesday's game following a close defeat against Reign FC and unfortunately, will have to navigate without key players sidelined due to injury. With both squads driven by motivation to grab some much-needed points, the question remains: who will emerge victorious and carry newfound confidence into their weekend fixtures?
