Reno 1868 FC Last Match Summary (v Real Monarchs):

Reno gave up an early goal to Chase Minter and from there poor defending and clearances conspired to allow Real Monarchs to power past Reno, who did well to score two late goals to make the match tight. It was an open match, but that open play was mostly in one direction as Reno struggled to get through.

Statistical Note: Reno 1868 FC becomes the 52nd team to play against a professional San Antonio soccer team in the 21st century.

Key to the match:

Reno proved last week that they can score goals, but the other thing they proved last week is their porous defense. San Antonio FC may well concede but they should keep their heads up if that happens, even if that puts them behind as Reno will likely give enough opportunities for San Antonio FC to pull a goal back.

Prediction: San Antonio FC 3 Reno 1868 FC 1
