NWSL picks for OL Reign vs. Portland Thorns

Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the NWSL picks from women’s soccer expert Sandra Herrera. Herrera is CBS Sports’ women’s soccer analyst and has been reporting on the game for more than five years. Providing insight both internationally and domestically, she has covered local markets, NWSL drafts and NWSL championship finals.

For Portland Thorns vs. OL Reign, Herrera is picking the Thorns to win 1-0. While both sides will be missing players who have joined USWNT for the Women’s World Cup, the expert still expects Wednesday’s match to be a competitive one.

When these teams last met, Portland secured a 2-0 league win. Herrera is expecting another strong defensive effort from the league-leading Thorns.

“A good game by Thorns defensive midfielder Sam Coffey will be key to Portland’s success,” Herrera told SportsLine. Stream the game here.
