North Carolina Courage: Coach Paul Riley has echoed the motto "Burn the boats" for his team as they gotten off to an impressive start to their tournament. Forward Jessica McDonald has been upgraded from out to questionable on the injury report ahead of this game, and is likely an added option for the Courage in this game, but it's going to be their midfielders who will likely look to disrupt Chicago.
Chicago Red Stars: Coach Rory Dames has kept his team in a scripted game plan during the group matches and his typical starters are likely going to see time in this match against the Courage. Chicago has typically matched up well against the Courage in regular season format, but will have its hands full as the reigning champion Courage have given teams a struggle on defense with the likes of Debinha and Lynn Willams.
North Carolina Courage take the win, but only after Alyssa Naeher forces the shot total to climb. Pick: North Carolina Courage 1, Red Stars 0.
